The Doryphoros was a prominent sculpture by Polykleitos, created between 450 and 440 BC. Several Roman copies in marble of the original Greek bronze have survived. The best-preserved copy is housed in the National Archaeological Museum of Naples.
The Doryphoros of Polykleitos is one of the most famous and iconic sculptures of Ancient Greece, embodying aesthetic perfection and the pursuit of harmony in classical art. In this masterpiece of antiquity, an athlete is characterized in contrapposto, leaning on one leg, in the attitude of carrying a spear or javelin. This statue was one of the models for Polykleitos’s canon, a system of ideal measurements based on anatomical proportions for the idealized representation of the human body. In this case, Polykleitos represents the ideal height of the male body as seven times the height of the head. The Doryphoros stands out for its balance and harmony, leaving a lasting impact on the history of art.
