The bronze statue of the young athlete Apoxyomenos is a unique find not only in the Adriatic Sea, but also in the world. It was found on the seabed off the isle of Vele Orjule at a depth of 45 metres. Thanks to its wholeness and the exquisite workmanship, the statue is distinguished as a work of art of high quality. The statue was discovered in it entirety, with only the little finger of the left hand missing and a part of the original bronze plinth, which was separated from the statue, still attached to the sole of the right foot.
The was taken out of the sea in '99; conservation and restoration work began in 2000 and done in Zagreb. The work was managed by the late restorer Giuliano Tordi, formerly of the Opificio delle Pietre Dure in Florence, in collaboration with the master-restorer Antonio Šerbetić, head of the Croatian Conservation Institute’s Workshop for Metal. The work was finalised after six years.
