It was ordered to the artist by the Cardinal Scipione Borghese and carved in marble by Bernini between 1623 and 1624. Is one of the most important and famous examples of Baroque sculpture, in which the torsion of the bust and the gesture’s power is express with great realism. The head of the eagle on the shield under his feet is a connection to the Borghese family. Is exposed at the Borghese Gallery in Rome.
The mold used to execute the bronze work using the lost-wax casting process was produced directly on the original by Ferdinando Marinelli Sr., and is currently in the collection of the Fonderia Artistica Ferdinando Marinelli
