BB_Discobolus-(discus-thrower)Selected from the world-famous Greek and Roman collection of the British Museum, it provides a visually stunning and thought-provoking exploration of the human condition seen through Greek eyes.  The rich historical exhibition will include a range of artworks from free-standing marble sculptures and gold objects to beautifully crafted terracotta pieces and vases.  The Body Beautiful seamlessly articulates themes of the divine body, birth, marriage and death. The rich collection of works encourages visitors to connect with the ancient observations that still apply to how we identify with ourselves today.
