EPHEBE SMALL BRONZE HEAD

The Marathon Ephebe - Young Man is thought to have been the work of Praxiteles, dating to the 4th century BC. It was caught in fishermen's nets in the Bay of Marathon in 1925. The original full size bronze statue is in the National Museum in Athens. Some think that it is a representation of Hermes, god of transitions. This bust, as with all our other bronze items, are cast in Greece, using the traditional 'lost wax' method, therefore each piece is unique. It was made in Greece, stands 11 centimeters high, 7 centimeters width, and weighs approximately 1.2 kg.
