6.The Best Preserved Equestrian Statue of Marcus Aurelius
The Equestrian Statue of Marcus Aurelius is an ancient Roman equestrian statue on the Capitoline Hill in Rome, Italy. It is made of bronze and is 4.24 m high. Although the emperor is mounted, the sculpture otherwise has many similarities to the standing statue of Augustus. The original is now on display in the Capitoline Museums, and the sculpture that now stands in the open air of Piazza del Campidoglio is a replica made in 1981. The statue was created to commemorate Marcus Aurelius’ victory over the Sarmatians, after which he took the name “Sarmatia”.
The statue gives an impression of power and divine majesty: the emperor is larger than life-size and holds out his hand in the gesture that emperors often used when addressing troops. Without weapons or armor, Marcus Aurelius appears to be a peacemaker rather than a military hero, because that’s how he sees himself and his rule.
