Marathon Boy

Coloured Plaster
Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

Handcrafted coloured bust of the Marathon Boy, one of the finest statues of the Classical period.

The boy depicted stands naked. His left leg supports his S-shaped torso, which is characteristic of the work of the famous sculptor Praxiteles. He holds an object, which is now missing, in his extended left hand and twists his head slightly to glance at it. His raised right hand held another object, also missing. A ribbon with a horn-like projection adorns his thick hair. His inset eyes give the figure a wonderful sense of life and expression.

The boy has been identified as a victorious athlete or, according to another interpretation, as God Hermes. The statue is a prototype of Praxiteles's school and displays the grace, gentle movement and agility that characterize the work of this great sculptor.
