Torso. That portion of a human figure which includes the shoulders, veins, and breast. The term is generally applied to a statue deprived of head and arms. The "torso of the Belvedere" which was discovered at Rome at the end of the 15th century, and is now preserved in the Museum of the Vatican, and the "torso Farnese," now at Naples, are two admirable fragments of ancient sculpture.
