"Laocoon", also known as "The Laocoon and his Sons" (The Laocoon and his Sons), is the ancient Greek sculptor Agsandros (agesandros) and his sons in the middle of the first century BC A group of marble sculptures created by the sons of Polydoros and Athanodoros. The sculptures are about 184 cm high and are now in the collection of the Vatican Art Museum in Vatican City. The sculpture is a marble work that depicts Laocoon and his two sons being entangled to death by giant snakes. The content of the sculpture is based on the story of the Battle of Troy in Greek mythology. In the War of Troy, Laocoon warned his compatriots that it is dangerous to move the wooden horse left by the Greeks into the city. Therefore, the Greek protector Athena sent two giant pythons to Laocoon and entangled the priest and his two sons. The sculpture shows this shocking scene: the big snake uses its deadly twist to strangle Laocoon and his sons, one snake is caught on the chest of the younger son, and the other snake is wrapped around the father's thigh. Laocoon's head was tilted back, his lips were slightly open, and his face deformed due to pain. The elder son, who was also entangled by the snake, looked at his father in despair. "Laocoon" is based on the "Trojan Horse" legend in Greek mythology. The Greeks attacked Troy for ten years without success. Later, they built a large wooden horse and pretended to retreat, but the Greek soldiers hid in the horse's belly. The Trojans thought that the Greeks were gone, so they moved the wooden horse into the city as a gift to Athena. The priest Laocoon of Troy city, he saw through the Trojan horse tactics of the Greek coalition army, and warned the Trojans not to drag the Trojan horse with the hidden soldiers into the city, and Laocoon threw the spear at the wooden horse in anger and was offended. Secretly helped Athena of Greece. So, Athena sent two giant snakes to entangle Laocoon’s two sons, Antiphantes and Thymbraeus. Laocoon was also bitten by a snake to save his son. The Trojans saw that Laocoon was dead and thought it was Laocoon. The warning angered the gods, so the Trojans carried the wooden horse into the city even more confidently, so they carried the wooden horse into the city, leading to a disaster ending. The sculptor expresses this tragic scene through sculpture. In this work, Laocoon is in the middle, and his expression is in extreme fear and pain. He tried his best to free himself and the children from the entanglement of two giant snakes. His hands grasped a snake tightly, but his buttocks were bitten, and his expression was painful. , Seemed to be yelling, his body twisted and his muscles contracted strongly, all seemed so futile. On the left, Laocoon’s eldest son was entangled with his left leg and right arm by a giant snake. He seemed to have the hope of escaping and was not injured yet, but was stunned by the sight in front of him. He was struggling to put his leg and right arm. The arm broke free from the snake's entanglement. The second son on the right was tightly entangled by the snake, and raised his right arm in despair, unable to move, but his left hand still grasped the snake's body firmly. Laocoon and his two sons are represented as three bodies twisted by pain.
