Title

Boxer at Rest

Description

This Hellenistic bronze statue is one of the few remaining statues of this medium from antiquity. It depicts a boxer seated after a fight, his eyes and ears bloodied and arms still tense. Unlike Classical statues that show athletes engaged in their tasks, this statue shows the athlete with his task completed, which is a more Hellenistic approach. This statue was thought to have been displayed at the Baths of Constantine. It is now displayed at the National Roman Museum, Palazzo Massimo alla Terme.
