The Wrestlers

Anonymous

This is a version of the celebrated Hellenistic group which depicts two athletes engaging in a form of wrestling considered an Olympic sport in ancient Greece.

Requiring tremendous technical skill to carve, it was not used by sculptors in Italy until the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries.
