This is not Michelangelo. This is O Desterrado (The Exile) by Antonio Soares dos Reis. He was misunderstood and little credited, but is now considered one of the greatest realist sculptors in Portugal. This detail shows the breadth of his understanding of sculpting the human form. Soares could have just put one hand over the other but instead, chose a rather complex hand pose that enhances his relaxed figure.
