Into the ancient world

Many of the sculptures we have today are because of the ancient Greeks and Romans. This gallery will explore some of those pieces and include explanations for each. The themes I have chosen are movement and history/mythology. The reason I combined the last two are because the cultures considered mythology to be apart of their history. Thank you and I hope you enjoy my gallery. Julio I. Sotero
