  • The Lacoon statue is a copy however its position between the old buildings as well as the saga of warning for the Trojan horse always is nice to see  more »
  • I saw a picture of this statue when I was a kid and then again while I studied Homer at school. Seeing it "live" was very exciting and will stay in my memory forever.  more »

  • In 1506, in the vineyards of Roman F. De Freddie, stretched on the site of the ancient settlement Titus, found this sculptural group. Julius II bought it for the Vatican, where it is now. GG Marazli ordered a marble copy in Rome. It was performed by the Italian sculptor Carl Chevran. In 1870 the year "Laokon" has arrived to Odessa and has been established on a dacha of the merchant on small Fontane. In 1928 it was moved to the square on Preobrazhenskaya Street, and in 1971 "Laokon" moved to the Archaeological museum.

  • Beautiful place. Quite high-quality and exact copy, which fits nicely with the ensemble of the Odessa Archaeological Museum and recalls the Greek roots of Odessa, about which, given the rather strange date of the city Foundation, a few forgotten. Photo there is obligatory.

  • A copy of the ancient Greek sculpture "Laocoone and his sons", made of marble. Interestingly, ordered for himself this copy in 1870 Odessa entrepreneur, further city mayor of Odessa, being under the impressed of a seen sculpture in the Vatican Museum. And it is more interesting that the sculpture survived the change of power in the way and was not destroyed, only suffers periodically from the vandals.
