Artist

The creator of the artwork is unknown. It was presumably created around the end of the 19th Century b.c. In Italy.

Artwork

The “Boy with Thorn” statue is 28.5 cm high. It was discovered during excavations at the Villa Aldobrandini in Rome. Only the torso of the original statue has been preserved. The head, arms, legs, stone and pedestal were completed by the sculptor Emil Wolff following the “Capitoline Boy with Thorn”, a 73-cm bronze figure from the Palace of the Conservators in Rome.

Brief description

The boy with thorn is a classic, antique image motif of fine arts. A naked young man is sitting on a stone, his torso curled forward. His left leg is at an angle. He holds his right foot, with his left hand and it’s placed on his left thigh. He’s plucking out a non-visible thorn out of the sole of his right foot. His back is bent and his head is tilted over his foot. His wavy, neat hair falls from his head, caressing his neck and forehead.

Genre & Material
