Eugen Sandow Canvas Print.
This is a Canvas Print made from a photograph of Eugen Sandow wearing leopard-skin trunks and classical style sandals. Entitled "A New Sandow Pose (VII)." Photo taken from 'Sandow's Magazine of Physical Culture'.
It was taken at an unknown date, but before July 1902.
Eugen Sandow (born Friedrich Wilhelm Müller; 2 April 1867 – 14 October 1925) was a German bodybuilder and showman. Born in Königsberg, Sandow became interested in bodybuilding at the age of ten during a visit to Italy. After a spell in the circus, Sandow studied under strongman Ludwig Durlacher in the late 1880s.
The legendary Florenz Ziegfeld saw the young strongman and hired him for his carnival show. He soon found that the audience was far more fascinated by Sandows' bulging muscles than by the amount of weight he was lifting, so Ziegfeld had Sandow perform poses which he dubbed "muscle display performances."

★ Gymnast like muscular control
At the time of his death in 1925, a story was released that Sandow died prematurely at age 58 of a stroke shortly after pushing his car out of the mud. The actual cause of death was more likely the painful complications from syphilis, according to Sandow's biographer, David L. Chapman in his book, Sandow the Magnificent.
Sandow invented equipment, such as spring-grip dumbbells.
The Mr. Olympia bodybuilding trophy is named "The Sandow" in his honor.
He was 5ft 9 inches.

"Health is a divine gift, and the care of the body is a sacred duty, to neglect which is to sin."
"Life is movement. Once you stop moving, you're dead. Choose life."
