Parthenon Metope Wall Plaque Décor Centaur & Lapith Battle Sculpture Cast Stone

$79,90

This metope is from the eastern half of the south side of the temple. The South metopes in the British Museum show the battle between Centaurs and Lapiths at the marriage-feast of Peirithoos.
A Centaur, on the left, and a Lapith tussle like two wrestlers. The Lapith has seized the Centaur by the hair with
his right hand, pressing his right knee on the Centaur’s breast, his left arm is drawn back. The Centaur, rearing up, grasps the Lapith by the throat, twisting his forelegs round the Lapith’s right leg. The Centaurs right arm, made separately, and right hind foreleg are missing, as are the Lapith’s left forearm and foot, and parts of the frame.
