Elgin Marbles

We just learned about the ancient sculpture of the Jockey of Artemision.

Another ancient sculpture from the Classical Period is the Elgin Marbles also known as the Parthenon Marbles.

These are marble sculptures that were once in the large building known as the Parthenon.
They were made by a team of sculptors that worked for the famous Greek Sculptor named Phidias.
