This statue  is based on  the  6nd-century BC marble sculpture known as «The Kroisos Kouros» which is exhibited in the National Archaelogical Museum of Athens. The Kroisos Kouros  is a marble kouros from Anavyssos in Attica which functioned as a grave marker for a fallen young warrior named Kroisos (Κροῖσος).  A kouros is the modern term given to free-standing ancient Greek sculptures that first appear in the Archaic period in Greece and represent nude male youths. In Ancient Greek kouros means “youth, boy, especially of noble rank”. Although Kouroi have been found in many ancient Greek territories, they were especially prominent in Attica and Boiotia.
