EDITORS COMMENTS
This print titled "Greek athletes and their tools" takes us back to ancient times, showcasing the strength and skill of these remarkable individuals. The 19th-century artwork by Giovanni Antonio Sasso depicts various Greek athletes with their respective tools. In the foreground, we see a longjumper equipped with weights, symbolizing his dedication to achieving great distances in his jumps. Behind him stands a discus thrower or Discobolus, poised to release the discus with precision and power. This image beautifully captures the grace and athleticism of these sportsmen. Additionally, we catch a glimpse of cestus or caestus gloves worn by another athlete. These gloves were used in boxing matches, highlighting the intense nature of combat sports during that era. Hand-coloured copperplate engraving techniques bring this illustration to life, allowing us to appreciate every intricate detail meticulously crafted by Sasso. The historical significance of this artwork is further emphasized as it was featured in Giulio Ferrario's renowned publication on costumes from ancient and modern civilizations. Through this photo print, we are transported into an era where sports played a significant role not only for entertainment but also as displays of physical prowess and honor. It serves as a reminder of how athletics have evolved over time while still maintaining their fundamental essence – celebrating human strength and determination across generations.
