Statue: All that Remains are the Feet

Man is both amazingly creative, and amazingly destructive. The Parthenon, was built in 500BC, and was a munitions storage facility in 1687, and was blown up that very same year during a siege of the Acropolis. Beauty made, then destroyed. The same is true of this statue that is displayed at the Acropolis in Athens. All that remains are the feet. Who would destroy beauty? And what was this statue before it was destroyed.
