The marble torso on which our reproduction is based (Roman, Imperial period, 1st or 2nd century A.D.) is a copy or adaptation of a Greek statue of the fourth century B.C. The sinuous leaning pose of this youth brings to mind a famous statue of the deity Pothos, the mythological personification of erotic longing (pothos
means desire), that was much copied in the Roman period. Based on this evocative Roman work, our reduced-scale reproduction was created with a combination of three- dimensional imaging and traditional sculpture techniques.
Cast resin, hand patinated. 22''H x 8''W x 7''D including base.
