Spinario is a wonderful sculpture of the Hellenistic era from the 3rd century BCE. It shows a boy pulling a thorn from his foot and is proof that Hellenic art has mastered the realistic representation of people.
The photo shows a copy of the sculpture from the 1st century CE, which is in the British Museum in London.
