Found in Rome, on the Quirinal Hill in 1885. Now in the Palazzo Massimo alle Terme museum.
The bronze Boxer was discovered in the late 19th century, on the slopes of the Quirinal Hill in Rome, apparently after having been carefully and purposefully buried there in antiquity.
The ancient bronze depicts a pugilist, seated and resting. His broken nose, cauliflower ears, and numerous cuts attest to time spent in the fighting ring. A few still-bleeding cuts, once picked out with inlaid copper, suggest he has just finished a fight. The rock on which he rests is not ancient.
The sculpture was created using the lost-wax casting process, and consists of eight separate peices joined together by solder.
