Since the artwork is a little over five feet tall, it has an intimate scale that capture the viewer’s attention because it is around the height of an actual human.

The audience feels may feel as if they are holding their breaths as they await the man’s next move. The anticipation that surrounds the results of the throw gives the sculpture an electrifying tone that amplifies the climatic nature of the work. Nonetheless, the sculpture has a twisted perspective that accentuates the man’s arm with the discus in it. The man’s other arm is stretched out down in front of his knee to give the artwork an angular shape. This silhouette incontestably makes the arm with the discus the focal point of the sculpture and gives the sculpture a dramatic contrast.
