Myrons’ Discobulos Reproduction Sculpture Statue
Design Plus Gallery presents a Sculpture of the Discus Thrower. The original statue was made in bronze and only known to have existed because of later copies made by Romans. Created by the sculptor Myron in the 5th century BCE, the original captured the moment in which an athlete was about to release a heavy disc in an attempt to throw the farthest. The twisted torso is filled with potential energy, a departure from the stable and static forms of the past. The reproduction is in good condition, with minor wear and sits on a marble base.
