Bronze handmade Discobolus.
The Discobolus (disk thrower) is depicted just before releasing his throw. Discobolus is considered to be one of the first statues that is a great example of harmony and balance. The statue was completed around 450 BC and as always with Greek athletes, the Discobolus is completely naked. A lot of attention is put on the discus throwerĘs body and little emotion is shown in his face.
The lack of symmetry in this sculpture is an example of the advancement of Classical sculpture from Archaic.
