Description

The present lot is based on the 3rd century B.C. model known as the Pankratiasts, which was held in the Uffizi's collection since 1677. Celebrated as a thrilling sport since its inclusion in the ancient Olympic Games of 648 B.C., the pankration combined wrestling with boxing-like blows.
