I learnt so much. It was so interesting. I can't believe the work in all the statues. It's just amazing to learn how they did things back in time. Loved it all. Wish I could have spent longer looking at all the wonders.

Like all statues in the museum it is excellent in its presentation and a beautiful ancient statue. Many more statues in the museum add to the exhibition.

This is part of the Museum of the History of the Olympic Games and this exhibit was at the top of a very high building - the story exhibited as explained by our guide was very interesting

A beautiful statue and in wonderful condition but there is some debate if it is original Praxiteles or by someone else. That's because there is some deviation from Praxiteles style.

Another world-renowned sculpture from your Art 100 class to marvel at up close! It is another exquisite example of the perfection of Greek sculpture. Do stop in and savor it for awhile while you are visiting the area. Best if you read up on it...More
