The Marathon Ephebe ('Young Man') is thought to have been the work of Praxiteles, dating to the 4th century BC. It was caught in fishermen's nets in the Bay of Marathon in 1925. The original full size bronze statue is in the National Museum in Athens. Some think that it is a representation of Hermes, god of transitions.
He is cast for us, in Greece, using the traditional 'lost wax' method. As nothing is mass-produced, there will inevitably be slight variations in patination and colouring. Each piece is, therefore, unique. Also, please allow for variations of a millimetre or two from the specified height. He is mounted on a marble base.
