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. Even today it is a beautiful example of homoerotic art even though it was made centuries ago.

Based on this evocative Roman work, our reduced-scale reproduction was created with a combination of three-dimensional imaging and traditional sculpture techniques.

Torso of a Youth is cast in resin and hand patinated. Measures 22"H x 8"W x 7"D (including base).

Licensed reproduction from the Metropolitan Museum.
