It is hard to imagine how old this sculpture is. Thispiece looks really real.

This is a very detailed sculpture. That's amazing that it lasted that long. Saying that, that is great detail for being so long ago, and they probably didnt have the tools we have today. The look on his face seems almost like a one of dispair. It seems as if he misses his home, say if he was a warrior in the army.

It is truly amazing how the people that long ago could make such detailed sculptures without the use of any power tools.  To carve things out of stone someone had to be very strong and artistic . People were not ashamed to be naked like they are today it seems.
