Naxian marble Ancient Greek Archaic statue of a kouros, found in Sounion, circa 600 BC, Athens National Archaeological Museum. Cat no 2720. Against grey.

The stature is a voitive offering to Poseidon and stood before his temple. Its over lifesize scale is striking and testifies to the tendency of early Archaic sculptirs to create impressive colossal statues
