Of the many sculptures we saw, I found the Boxer to be the most intriguing. First, he was sculpted out of bronze and is from the Hellenistic period (323-31 B.C.). This piece shows a realistic result from an athletic interaction such as boxing. On his face, there are marks to indicate where he had been hit as well as on his ear having cut like marks. He also does not have a blank look on his face like many of the other sculptures seen throughout this museum but has a look of exhaustion. This piece also appears to have survived due to being buried so that the Barbarians would not steal it during their invasion of Rome.
