More Greek Art images from Hermitage

More images for you to enjoy.

1)  Apollo. II c. BC Roman copy of the Greek original of III c. BC. Marble, 172 cm. Acquired by agents of Catherine the Great of Russia in 1787 from London collection of John Lyde Brown

2) Omphale. Lovely combination of mace and spindle.... 

Roman copy of the Greek original of III - II c. BC. Marble. Found in Ostia, Italy. Acquired in 1862 from the collection of Marquis Compana.

3) This was very difficult to photograph but at least I managed to capture it in full length. It's a very elegant stand with a figure of athlete. I don't know if such things were used for decorations in homes or it was a funerary item put in the grave of the athlete. I wish you could see it in real life to appreciate the beauty of the work.

Bronze, mid V c. BC. Found in the necropolis of Nymphaion in Locris, barrow 24, stone tomb 19. Excavations conducted by A.E.Lyutsenko in 1876.

That's all the images I brought back from Hermitage. It was rather difficult to photograph because of the items placed too close to each other, the lighting and positioning were not good (at least for a non-professional).
