Torso

 

(1) In anatomy, the trunk of the human body without head and limbs.

(2) In the visual arts, a sculptural representation of the human trunk. Classical torsos are parts of ancient statues that have been preserved. Since the second half of the 19th century the torso has often been depicted as an independent genre, making it possible to represent the musculature of the human body more distinctly.
