EDITORS COMMENTS
The Statue of Lacoon and his Sons, a renowned masterpiece of Hellenistic Greek art, is depicted in this print from the Vatican Museums in Vatican City. This monumental marble sculpture, dating back to the 2nd century BC, is attributed to the skilled hands of three Rhodian sculptors: Agesander, Athenodores, and Polydorus. The group represents the Trojan priest Lacoon and his two sons, Antiphates and Thymbraeus, who were transformed into serpents by Athena as a punishment for attempting to deceive the Greeks during the Trojan War. The intricate details of the sculpture reveal the artists' exceptional craftsmanship and their ability to capture the raw emotions and tension of the scene. The serpents coiled around the figures, their bodies glistening with the fine veins and scales, exude a lifelike presence. The facial expressions of Lacoon and his sons convey fear, surprise, and determination, as they struggle against their metamorphosis. This artwork holds significant historical and mythological importance, as it is referenced in both Virgil's Aeneid and Homer's Iliad. The Statue of Lacoon and his Sons is a testament to the rich cultural heritage of ancient Greece and the enduring influence of its myths and legends. The print offers a unique opportunity to appreciate the intricacies and beauty of this pristine marble masterpiece, which continues to captivate and inspire art lovers and historians alike.
