Statuette "Runner" After Olympic Model

The modern Olympic Games are the major sporting event, organization of which takes billions. The Olympic Games in the antique times were comparatively modest as they lasted only five days and consisted only of a few competitions. But their cultural significance was immense.
In the early days of the Games in Olympia, the athletic competition was limited to a run on a stadium. Later, other disciplines were added, such as the "gun barrel", which was carried in the arms of a foot soldier. Later the difficult athletic disciplines such as wrestling and boxing appeared. The central event of the games was the pentathlon, a competition in discus throwing, running, long jumping, wrestling and javelin
This sculpture from patinated brass presents an ancient sporting discipline of the Olympic Games, carefully modernized by contemporary artists. Deviations in color and patina witness of a real manual labor. Each piece is unique. Format 12 x 16.5 x 3 cm (W / H / D).
