Two sculptors namely, Daphnis of Miletus and Paionios of Ephesus designed the statue. The dying gladiator portrays an injured Celtic fighter in anticipation of death in the arena. The sculpture depicts a living-dimension marble of a singular amidst the sculptures of bronze bestowed at Pergammon. King Attlos I erected the statue to honor his wins over the Gladiators who had raided Asia during the 239 B.C. The dying Gaul imitates a miserable gladiator sitting on his shield tired and given up. The sculpture shows a perforation on the warrior’s right lung on its lower lobe. The Gaul is either dying because of the bleeding wound or the enemy might inflict another fatal injury at any moment. The sculptors are sensitive in the application of the principle of proportion. The warrior is seated at the middle with his sword and shield dropped besides him. The viewers would focus on the main statue of the gladiator and his weapons.
Michelangelo designed the Pieta sculpture between 1498 and 1499, which is currently housed in Vatican City. The sculpture exposes Mary holding the body of Christ in her laps immediately his body was taken down from the cross. The statue outstands amongst others because of its inability to express proportionality. In common situations, it would be specious for a woman to hold a man in her laps due to the size and weight. Mary’s body is concealed with Christ’s body in her arms. Nevertheless, the statue is magnificent, and other artists commend it for the outstanding manifestation of creativity (Ragionieri, 2008). According to Giorgio Vasari, the sculpture will remain as the best despite other artists’ innovations. Michelangelo employs the harmony principle to outline the homogeneity of the sculpture throughout the work.
