The Boxer, pen on paper, 5” x 5”, 2013

After seeing The Boxer exhibited on loan to the Met, I was inspired to sketch this beautiful Hellenistic piece, which was probably made between 400-300 BC. It’s likely that this represents a real athlete that was revered for his abilities and courage. This has always been a favorite of mine, but seeing it in person really piqued my love for ancient sculpture.
