Man Entwined by Two Snakes, c. 1527. Creator: Giovanni Antonio da Pordenone (Italian

Man Entwined by Two Snakes, c. 1527. Although not exact copies, the compositions of both this bronze plaque and drawing derive from the Laocoon group, an ancient marble sculpture unearthed in 1506 in Rome. The nearly life-size statue of the Trojan priest Laocoon and his sons battling giant sea snakes quickly became a source of inspiration for artists. They especially appreciated the emotional anguish and physical strain portrayed by the struggling male nudes. In The Flagellation, the sculptor Moderno adopted Laocoon's pose and muscularity for the suffering figure of Christ, thereby presenting him as an athletic and virtuous hero. Pordenone's drawing of a man entwined by two serpents seems to be his own expressive version of Laocoon
