The Dying Gaul

dsc051471

I’ve been thinking about the ancient “The Dying Gaul” for a while now and wanted to post some photos of it, from multiple angles, here on ArtDuh. It is a beautiful sculpture, and so very well done. The original Greek bronze of this sculpture was lost to time, and this is a later Roman copy of that original Greek version.

I’ve been thinking about this so much because I have an idea for some artwork that I’d like to make. A painting that will have the main figure use a similar pose. When I think about my own idea, this sculpture keeps coming to mind as good inspiration. Always good to have reference material!
