A great hall with a lot of statues. The most of them are still in good condition. The information on the signs are very informative.

Statue is so well carved, it is quite mind boggling. Amazing to see a statue made to look as if it comes to life after dark or when no-one is looking :)

Part of the temple pediment, this statue is incredible but cannot be interpreted without reference to what is going on in the rest of the statues that make up the composite.

The artistc style of Hermes has not been duplicated. It is a miracle. Seeing this is a once in a lifetime experience. It is an original. Not a Roman copu. Seeing this gives the tourist of the unique enlightenment of Praxiteles, who lived to work.
