Together with his teacher Sokrates and his pupil Aristotle, Plato formed an essential part of the great trio of ancient Greek philosophers.
Plato was a mathematician, a writer of philosophical dialogues, and the founder of the Academy in Athens, the first institution of Higher Education in the western world.
This collection is made in the UK in cast Carrara marble. The beautiful white marble of Carrara in Tuscany was used for the Pantheon in ancient Rome and was a favourite of Michelangelo.
The sculptures are created using a process of dry casting, so that each sculpture contains over 90% marble. They glisten!
