This is a study after Michelangelo's study of legs for a reclining figure in the Florence Casa Buonarroti. The etching is one half the size of the original drawing. I memorized the calligraphy of the original drawing and then drew directly on to the plate without any reference to the drawing. Thus presenting a challenging memory study. This explains why the impression is the reverse of the original Michelangelo drawing. Notice I even included a simulated bloch of ink which exists in the original by Michelangelo.
