Details of the Chimera of Arezzo

The Chimera of Arezzo is a well-known sculpture and images of it are easy to find more or less everywhere on the web. Images, of course, are not the same thing as seeing the original, presently kept at the museum of archeology in Florence, in Italy. As a vicarious experience to the real thing, I am presenting here a number of images of details of the sculpture taking from the reproduction owned by the "Galleria Frilli" in Florence, with their kind permission. This reproduction, as all reproduction, is not perfect, but it is of very good quality and it can be said to be as faithful to the original as possible.

In the images below, we see the Chimera of Arezzo from some unusual directions and showing details that are not always easy to appreciate.
