Eros (?)

140 a.C. - 130 a.C.. Marble. Room 072

Hellenistic original. The movement of the body and its composition in an inverted “S” shape recall the statues of Praxiteles. Nevertheless, the proportions are thinner and the treatment of the flesh is more delicate. The forms and details of the body are very soft which is a feature of late Hellenistic sculpture from Ionia. The two holes in the shoulders are possibly the remains of some embedded bronze wings, an attribute of the god Eros.
