Relief  “The self-made man”. Allegory representing a man sculpting himself from a rough rock. This work was created in the workshops of Decorarconarte.

In this image of a man sculpting himself, we can see how the subject strives to mould his body through self-discipline and self-control. This image represents the central idea of Stoic philosophy that each individual has the power to sculpt his own life through his actions and decisions. According to the Stoics, happiness and virtue depend not so much on what happens to us, but on how we react to what happens to us.

Likewise, the image of a man sculpting himself also reflects the Stoic idea that we must accept our fate and adapt to the circumstances around us. Just as a sculptor adapts to the characteristics of the stone he is working with, we must adapt to the situations that life presents us with and find in them opportunities to grow and improve.

In conclusion, the image of a man sculpting himself is a powerful metaphor for Stoic philosophy and its emphasis on self-determination, self-discipline and acceptance of fate. By following Stoic principles, we can sculpt our lives with the same determination and skill as a sculptor moulds his work of art, and thus find the happiness and virtue we long for.
