A blast from the past

A statue part of the vast collection at the Capitoline Museum in Rome, is the very emotional ancient Roman copy of the original but vanished bronze Greek version, The Dying Gaul. The statue depicts a dying Celt after an ancient battle a few hundred years BC. This particular copy was rediscovered in the 17th century after lying in oblivion since Antiquity.
