The muscular body is anatomically detailed, the right arm carried behind the head, while the left is dropped, the legs spread apart with the right foot resting on the rock and the left on the ground. The original, from which the cast derives, is placed in the Gipsoteca di Monaco, dated to the second half of the third century. BC Found around 1624 in the ditches of the Castel Sant'Angelo in Rome, it became part of the Barberini collection in 1628, where it remained for a long time, despite the numerous purchase offers it was the subject of. Extremely appreciated and admired work, it was purchased by the Crown Prince Ludwig of Bavaria in 1818.
