Our Statue is based on the Artemision Bronze statue of Zeus or Poseidon which is a highlight of the collections in the National Archaeological Museum of Athens.
The statue often called the God from the Sea is an ancient Greek sculpture that was recovered from the sea off Cape Artemision, in northern Euboea, Greece.
The God, shown in great stride, extends his left arm before his body, while holding a thunderbolt or trident in his right hand.
His identification as Zeus or Poseidon is controversial (the former identification is more probable). It is one of the few preserved original statues of the Severe Style, notable for the exquisite rendering of motion and anatomy. It is certainly the work of great sculptor of the early Classical period. ca 460BC.
The object he was holding was not found.

Material and manufacturing process: Cast marble
Cast marble statues are made from a composite material in which natural crushed Greek marble stone is mixed with a small amount of resin which acts as a glue. The mixture is then poured into a mold of the design of the statue. Because the powder is so fine, the smallest details can be reproduced using this method. Over 90% of the finished sculpture is natural crushed Greek marble stone, giving it a look and feel of solid natural marble. All sculptures are hand finished to ensure the best quality. This strong material is water and weather resistant, bubble free, will not crack and can be washed with most cleaning agents.
Please note: our statues are not sculpted. The 100% natural marble statues are hand carved and cost a lot of money. Our product offerings are intended to be affordable to the majority audience.
