Bronze statuette of a huntsman, probably representing Alexander the Great
Alexander the Great had himself immortalised in sculptural groups participating in hunts. This bronze figure of a man thrusting a spear into a wild animal has facial features not unlike those of Alexander. The statuette may come from a small-scale composition inspired by a larger group of bronzes at Delphi. These statues were dedicated to Alexander by Krateros and were reputedly made by Lysippos and Leochares, two of Alexander’s court sculptors. If it does not represent Alexander himself, it may be a portrait of one of his Macedonian successors.
