Hellenistic Greek Wrestlers Bonded Marble Statue
1st Century BC, Uffizi Gallery, Florence
The athleticism of wrestling allowed this ancient artist to depict the human form in movement from every possible angle. One of the most dramatic and realistic pieces in Hellenistic art, the intensely straining muscles and taut limbs seen in this classic work draw the eye into an experience of form and style. This virtually identical Roman copy of the Greek original is cast in bonded natural marble and hand-finished to be truly gallery-worthy. 9½"Wx6"Dx9"H. 5 lbs.
