Marble garden statue, Apollo

“Apollo”, garden sculpture in marble. The graceful and naked male figure of the young god, gently leaning against a trunk and with his right hand on the head. This sculpture is a variation of Lycian Apollo also known as Apollo of Florence or the Apollino, a work of the famous Greek sculptor Praxiteles (4th century BC), which can now be found in the Uffizi Museum in Florence. As for the original statue the name “Lycian” seems to be due to the fact that it would have been located in the “Lyceum”, the school founded by Aristotle in Athens. around 335 b. C., near a sanctuary dedicated to Apollo. Due to its fame, this statue has been frequently copied over the centuries. She was known as one of the best examples of the perfect proportions of the human body. The sculpture can be located indoors, in a winter garden, or outdoors in a park or garden. Its very beautiful patina comes from the time already spent outdoors.
