The title Diamonds aims to the expression in cycling when talking about the perfect form that's surrounded by a shimmer of mystery. To "have diamonds" is a unique, almost subliminally, condition in which the legs appear to be capable of working tirelessly. Here, the legs have been reduced to only the important thigh muscles, knee and calf muscles. In cycling, there is an aesthetic idealising on legs with verging on sexualization and fetishism. The legs have a phallic character with an expression reminiscent of a giant erect male genitalia.
