Lysippos from Sikyon of Corinth lived in the 4th century BC. He chose Bronze as his medium but his works reached us in copies from Marble. Destined to become Alexander the Great’s exclusive portraitist he changed the art of his time forever by capturing the instantaneous moment of action and introducing ingenious aesthetic and dramatic innovations. His style – characterizing the new Hellenistic era – became the ideal model for sculpture inspiring subsequent artists throughout Europe. In the film, the Spirit of Bronze and the Spirit of Marble guide us on a metaphysical journey through time researching the story of the legendary sculptor.
