Sculptor of ancient classical Greece who lived in about the fourth century b.C., influencing the late classical period. He created many sculptures, many of which are not preserved but so are the Roman copies, so although there is darkness about his life his imprint in this world is well known and with certainty. Probably he was a contemporary of Phidias, perhaps a little later, and together with him is one of the great masters of classical Greek sculpture.

Thus, in his sculptures of Aphrodite, Dionysus and other Greek gods, he left engraved the so-called "Praxitelian curve", that is, a position of standing sculptures in which the waist is slightly curved. It is not a stance that is used much in real life, but we must say that in the sculptures it looks fantastic for what has been adopted by later sculptors from around the world.
