Boxer at Rest (detail)

Boxer at Rest - an original Greek bronze in the Palazzo Massimo in Rome

The Boxer at Rest, also known as the Terme Boxer, Seated Boxer, Defeated Boxer, or Boxer of the Quirinal, (Pugilatore in riposo) is a highly realistic portrayal of a seated boxer after the fight — injuries on his body (and nose) are obvious while red copper was used to highlight wounds and even blood dropping down. It was cast using the lost-wax process with the eight pieces soldered together.
