  • It's probably the most valuable piece of the small Archaeological Museum of Olympia, who has devoted a separate room. The statue depicts Hermes holding the little Dionysus. Some parts are missing (as well as others that have been reconstructed), but the collection, also because of the lighting, is an extraordinary effect. Discussing again if the statue is in fact been sculpted by Praxiteles or whether it is to be attributed to others, but there is no doubt that we are facing a masterpiece. The smoothness of the marble and the softness of the anatomical details have an effect almost pictorial. No expert on art, but I think we're at the level of the great Michelangelo, just that the statue was built, if it were true the authorship of Praxiteles, almost 2000 years before the great Italian genius.
