Narcissus

25 - 50. White marble Not on display

This is a Roman copy of a statue which made about 400 B. C. by one of Policlytus’s pupils. The seventeenth-century additions (calves, arms and trunk) change the original posture of the young man who also rested his left arm on a pilaster. It is not Narcissus reflecting his image in the water, as was previously thought, but a young man in a meditative pose. In some copies, he carries an apple in his right hand like Paris, and in another he wears an athlete’s headband.
