Object information „Antinous“
Der junge, schöne und auffallend muskulöse Antinous war der Geliebte des römischen Kaisers Hadrian. Nachdem er in jungen Jahren unter ungeklärten Umständen im Nil ertrunken war, wurde vom Kaiser seine Verehrung angeordnet. So entstanden zahlreiche Darstellungen. Bei aller Verherrlichung der athletischen Gestalt ist hier auch ein melancholischer Zug nicht zu übersehen, der beispielsweise durch das tief ins Gesicht fallende, gelockte Haar erzeugt wird, da er dem Ausdruck etwas Düsteres verleiht.

Notes on information

Historical Mould

The gypsum mould is the traditional impression technique of the 19th century. This artisan knowledge is maintained and passed on in the Gipsformerei. It holds thousands of gypsum moulds, some of which are almost 200 years old, and uses them for the appropriate casts.


The sizes are usually the artwork without base. Please explicitly request a final measurement for matching in your request.


For some objects you can only view images of the respective original artwork. Please note that these may to some extent differ from the state of the replicas. Many impressions are in a better condition than the originals.


The word “white” refers to gypsum with a white pigment layer. Painted replicas depict the material and the colourfulness of the original. Our artists strive to ensure the highest degree of analogy with the artwork. Slight differences from the photographies are unavoidable. Colour- and mould-related changes to the originals (e.g. through restoration or addition) cannot always be taken into account.


The plaster casts are not suitable for installation outdoors or in rooms with increased humidity. As an alternative for the outdoor use, we recommend the conditionally weather-resistant material “polymer plaster”, about which we will be pleased to advise you.
