Very old marvelous sculptures

The statue of Laocoön and his sons, also known as the Laocoön group.The figures are almost life-size and the group measures just over 2m in height, showing the Trojan priest Laocoon and his sons Antiphantes and Thymbraeus being attacked by sea serpents .
Pliny attributes the work, then in the palace of Emperor Titus, to three Greek sculptors from the island of Rhodes: Agesander, Athenodoros and Polydorus, but it is not known whether it is an original work or from a copy of an earlier sculpture. Various dates have been suggested for the statue [between 27 BC and 68 AD]
