The Origin of Theseus Defeats the Centaur Marble Sculpture:
This marble sculpture is related to a mythical story: a bloody battle broke out when the Centaur tried to destroy the wedding of King Pirithous. With the help of Theseus, the intruder was extinguished. This famous marble sculpture is symbolic: human reason could entirely overcome the primitive animal power of the nature.
The sculpture of Theseus Defeats the Centaur was made by the famous Italian neoclassical sculptor Antonio Canova. In his early years, he loved sculpture very much, and he also had the opportunity to practice in his grandfather’s work. At the age of 9, he made two marble gods, and later began to serve as an assistant to his grandfather. His talent was appreciated by his grandfather’s lord and the Venetian nobility. His work of arts mark the beginning of the sculpture from the dramatic Baroque period to the neoclassical period pursued by the revival of classical style.
