Appearances Animal Crossing: New Leaf

The Robust Statue is a sculpture first introduced in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. It is a Greek sculpture that was completed towards the end of the Severe period, circa 460-450 BC.

The Diskobolus of Myron was originally made of bronze. The original Greek bronze is lost but the work is known through numerous Roman copies, both full-scale ones in marble, which was cheaper than bronze, such as the first to be recovered, the Palombara Discopolus, or smaller scaled versions in bronze.

Authenticity[edit]

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, if the discus in his hand is smooth it's genuine. If it appears to have bumps on it, it is fake. (Like a UFO.)
