In New Leaf, the fake variation of this sculpture is found holding a UFO, while the real version yields a smooth, flat disc.
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 and also marble. More historic facts include; it was finished between 460-450 BCE in Greece, there is great symmetry throughout the body, and also there is a lack of emotion in the man's face. A common theory behind this is that Myron's desire for perfection has made him suppress too rigorously the sense of strain in the individual muscles.
