A grey mounted print of the River god Ilissos taken from The Parthenon Sculptures (438BC-432BC), designed by Pheidias.

The print shows a marble statue from the West pediment of the Parthenon (West pediment A).

It?s a figure of a reclining naked man, made from a single piece of marble, who appears as if caught in the action of raising himself. The statue is thought to represent the river-god Ilissos, a stream in Athens, shown as if rising from the water onto the riverbank.
