Munich Kouros

The large grave statue of a youth from Attica known as the Munich Kouros is located in the Glyptothek in Munich, Germany.

The archaic kouros was created about 540 BC. The statue with its heavy proportions and the short hair portrays an athletic ideal. The Kouros was acquired by the Glyptothek in 1909.
