Le Gladiateur Borghese Sculpture
(c. 1st century) By Agasias of Ephesus. Museum replica of the original in Rome’s Borghese gallery.
The obvious inspiration for Bernini’s famed sculpture of David, this ancient gladiator is regarded as the perfect example of classic beauty. The masterly detail of muscular definition has made it an anatomical model studied by artists and admired by art lovers. Our museum replica is an authentic foundry iron casting finished in faux bronze atop a handsome solid marble base.
