Yet here you can see a close up photograph showing the top part of The Oath of Spartacus and the detailing that went into producing this, which was while Louis Ernest Barrias was in Rome at the French Academy located in the Villa Medici, furthering his studies and career, and this was the last statue he sent back to Paris prior to his return.

Now you will find that Le Serment de Spartacus was sculpted to depict Spartacus imagined as a young boy, who is helping a man that was subject to crucifixion, which is an ancient punishment for slaves, prisoners, etc during the early part of the Roman Empire, and in the above image you can see the broken chains of slavery located by the feet of the man.

With this side view of The Oath of Spartacus marble statue you can see the remains of a tree that the man has been tied to for his crucifixion, with the young boy supporting him, but as though vowing to avenge his death, which is exactly what happened in history, when Spartacus led the greatest slave revolt that the Roman Empire had or would ever know.
