Ascelpius (Asklepios), the greek god of medicine, alabaster statue with color and patina

Handmade greek alabaster statue of Asclepius (Asklepios) with red color and golden patina, the greek god of Medicine

Handmade greek alabaster statue of Asclepius (Asklepios) with red color and golden patina, the greek god of Medicine. One of the best greek art decorating gifts, ideal for clinics and medical offices.

According to the Greek religion and Mythology, Asclepius, also known as Hepius, was the son of Apollo and a mortal woman named Coronis. He is considered as a hero and god of medicine. Asclepius represents the healing aspect of the medical arts and his most prominent symbol is a snake-entwined staff, which is regarded as the the symbol of Medicine till today. One of his daughters is Hygieia, the goddess of cleanliness and personification of health and hygiene.

In ancient Greece many of the statues and architectural sculpture were colourfully painted in a way that is described as ''polychrome'' (deriving from the Greek words many and colour)? However, due to intensive weathering and other effects on the stone, the ''polychromy'' on Ancient Greek sculpture and architecture has substantially or totally faded, leading the scientists for centuries to believe that the statues were originally totally white.

***Please notice that any differences of colour, form and painting between the images and the products received are due to the fact that the items are 100% handmade. ***
