This is not a before and after picture - this is two Roman copies of the original Greek bronze sculpture Discobolus by Myron, made sometime 450-460 B.C. The sculpture was incredibly popular so a lot of copies of it were made, these two are from the 2nd century A.D. - the one to the left is dated to the reign of emperor Hadrian, and the one to the right is slightly later with a date around 150 A.D This one is the best preserved of all the Roman marble copies out there. These two are on display at Museo Nazionale Romani, in Rome. Others can be found at for example the Vatican Museums and British Museum.
