Ideal for the patio or garden, this Discobolus statue will transport viewers to the original Olympic games. Friends and guests will marvel at the realistic muscles and kinetic energy frozen in time. This museum-quality cast iron sculpture brings the competitive spirit and revered athletic artistry of ancient Greece to life.
Capturing the epitome of athleticism and motion, this finely crafted cast iron statue depicts Discobolus, the famed ancient Greek sculpture. The powerfully built discus thrower is frozen mid-motion, having just hurled the disc and now watching its path. The statue's chiseled physique shows the peak physical form of an Olympic athlete. Every muscle and sinew in the thrower's arms, legs and torso is tensed, highlighting the strength and effort behind the athletic feat. One arm reaches back having just released the disc, while the other extends out steady and poised. As with all cast iron products, this statue will continue to gently develop its own unique patina. Depending on positioning and environment, this can include mossing and general weathering. In order to begin this process, we store these statues outside. As rust forms its own seal, decades of service are ensured. Whilst a weathered look is generally preferred, a uniform finish can be achieved by priming and spraying or painting as required.
