In New Leaf, the fake variation of this sculpture is found holding a UFO, while the real version yields a smooth, flat disk.
Though the original statue was made out of bronze and is lost, there have been many copies made by the Romans. These copies include bronze as well as marble. It was finished between 460-450 BCE in Greece and there is great symmetry throughout the body as well as a lack of emotion in the man's face. A common theory is that Myron's desire for perfection had made him suppress too rigorously the sense of strain in the individual muscles.
