Detail from Roman sculpture showing tying of sandal
Detail from a Roman sculpture showing Hermes tying a sandal. The sculpture was made of marble and dates back to the 2nd century CE. It is a copy of a Greek original made of bronze and dated to the 3rd century BCE. The artifact is on display at the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek in Copenhagen (Denmark).
The sculpture once captured Hadrian’s villa in Tivoli. The object has been preserved in a great case due to the renovation carried out in the 18th century.
