Did you know?

Between the figures is a draped egg-shaped stone known as an omphalos, the metaphorical center of the world.


This is a typical example of Neo-Attic work, a school that revived the Archaic style of the late sixth century BC. The elongated figures and mannered gestures are typical of this school.
