The Uffizi Wrestlers is a famous Roman marble sculpture, after a lost Greek original of the 3rd century BC. It is now in the Uffizi collection in Florence. The two young men are engaged in the sport which the ancient Greeks called the Pankration, similar to the present-day sport of mixed martial arts.
This is an exact scaled-down copy of a cast taken from a larger piece, and is exclusive to It's All Greek.
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!
The high quality is such that there will be no discoloration - other than natural patination and ageing - especially if the pieces are placed outdoors.
