Sculptures – The Greek Slave

Everywhere you see paintings of nudes. I thought to pick up something else and look at sculptures. There are lots of them!

The Greek Slave is a marble statue in Raby Castle, carved in Florence by American sculptor Hiram Powers in 1844. Copies of the statue were displayed in a number of venues around Great Britain and the United States, and it quickly became one of Powers’ most famous and most popular works. The design of the statue was based upon the Venus de’ Medici in the Uffizi Gallery in Florence. (Information via Wikipedia.)
