Dying Gaul (Dying Trumpeter) Marble, c.. 220 BCE. Roman copy of Greek bronze original.
Things to think about when studying:
- What artistic period is this from?
- Which elements of the sculpture are indicative of that period?
- This sculpture was super popular - how did people demonstrate how much they liked it?
Funny… back in 220 BCE people demonstrated how much they liked art the same way people would today if our culture wasn’t being strangled by bad laws … by copying
Many important artistic works have survived through history *only* because they were copied.
