Limestone torso of a hunter


On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 162

This figure of a hunter, thrusting his spear as he lunges forward, was probably part of a sculptural group that must have shown at least the animal he attacks. Other men and dogs could also have been included in a type of hunting scene that was very popular in both the Hellenistic and Roman periods.
