The Farnese Bull

It was later brought from Rhodes to Rome and became part of the art and sculpture collection of the Roman politician Asinius Pollio.

Artemis and Iphigenia

It was found there on the site of the former gardens of Sallust. The replica statue offered in the online shop is a bronze cast of the plaster cast of the original in the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek, which was presumably commissioned by Bertel Thorvaldsen and completed by him.
