Admittedly the butt is one of my favorite attributes of the male physique. A man’s well developed glutes and legs indicate power and strength to me even more than bulging biceps or big pecs. Starting with that premise the piece developed around ‘Strength’ as a physical attribute but also an emotional one as well. I like the exotic nature of placing the figure, who is of African ancestry against an Asian setting. It highlights the strength required from within when you are an outsider, one of the 'different ones' in a society.
The world would be a much better place if more of us embraced what is different and foreign as exotic instead of shun it as abnormal and alien.
