I have used gold and blue pigments and pencil to create this 1.8 m high depiction of the dominant sculpture in the last room of the Glyptotek, Munich. The museum was built by Ludwig I to house his collection of Greek and Roman sculpture , (hence γλυπτο- glypto- “sculpture”, from the Greek verb γλύφειν glyphein “to carve”). Designed by Leo von Klenze in the Neo – Classical style, built between 1816 to 1830. Its a must if you’re in the city.
