IPTC INFO
CaptionOne of the master pieces of Greek Art. Praxiteles [around 343-330 BC] his only original work survived found the 8th of May 1877 at the Hera temple now at the museum of Ancient Olympia. Hermes and Dionysus are brothers as their father is Zeus. Art Specialists tell us that the face contains an asymmetry. If one looks the face from the left is sorrowful from the right it is smiling and seen from the front it is calm. Therefore if we move and look Hermes face it seems not to be static. Made from Parian marble. Praxiteles 390- c.330 BC lived in Athens about 360 BC his work is mainly known from Roman copies.
