Contrapposto is defined as the disposition of the human figure in where one part of the human body is turned opposite to another part, which creates a counter position of the body on its central axis. The weight of the body is thrown to one foot, which creates tension on one side of the body, but relaxation on the other. The narrator says in the short film that “one side of the body is in motion and the other is at rest”. This is partially wrong because contrapposto says that one foot has to be holding up all the weight and cannot be at rest but has to be a weight holder for the rest of the body.
