Further readings and sources:

  1. “The statues were discovered by Stefano Mariottini in the Mediterranean Sea just off the coast of Riace Marina, Italy, on August 16, 1972. The statues are currently housed in the Museo Nazionale della Magna Grecia in the Italian city of Reggio Calabria.” They are referred to as Warrior A and Warrior B

    These two warriors are an example of the severe style. “The Severe style is marked by an increased interest in the use of bronze as a medium as well as an increase in the characterization of the sculpture, among other features.” This severe style can be seen in the placidity of the expression on both Warrior A and Warrior B’s faces. *
