hermes with the infant dyonysus Hermes with the Infant Dionysus

Hermes with the Infant Dionysus dates from 340 before Christ and was made by Praxiteles, a sculpture from the Greek Classic period. The marble statue is about 2 meter high and was originally created for the temple of Hera at Olympia.

The autonomy and naturalness of the statue are the two aspects the artists from the Classic Period were trying to realize.
