PICT17062ac Paris Statue 340 - 330 B.C. Profile for guenievre
Statue immersed discovered on the sea ground; Museum comment: Bronze statue of a youth from the Antikythera shipwreck; The figure has been identified with Perseus, who would have been holding the head of Medusa; More probably, however, it depicts Paris, who would have been holding the 'Apple of Strife', ready to award it to the most beautiful goddess Aphrodite; Attributed to the Sikyonian sculptor Euphranor; About from 340 - 330 B.C. Athens Archaeological Museum

J'imagine l'excitation que doit procurer une telle découverte au fond de la mer! La plus récente, celle d'une déesse, est encore plus fascinante et d'une incroyable finesse, merci InFiNiLud!
