Giambologna's "Rape of the Sabine Women" is a majestic statue located in the Loggia dei Lanzi in Florence. 4.10 meters high, this work represents three figures: a young man lifting a woman above his head, while an elderly man, stuck between the young man's legs, despairs. This composition is also known as the three ages of man​.

Giambologna, official sculptor of the Medici family, created this work as a masterpiece of mannerism. A unique feature of the statue is its creation from a single block of marble, with a varied shape and multiple points of view that invite the viewer to observe it from different angles.

In the base of the statue there is a bronze plaque depicting the scene of the abduction, with varied combinations of the figures. The statue, exposed to atmospheric agents and vandalism, has undergone a process of deterioration and has required restoration, with ongoing debates about its museumization due to its vulnerability.
