The IISOH will purchase a bronze copy made from a mold of this statue.
The Vatican Museum owns an outstanding collection of ancient Greek and Roman art.
This is a naming opportunity. The benefactor can name this Sculpture Garden section which
will be in an outdoor landscaped area. The section will be dedicated with
a historical marker engraved in stone (marble or granite) or cast in relief in bronze.
