Handmade alabaster statue of Apollo with color and golden patina, the greek god of music and poetry. A stylish and elegant souvenir from Greece!

Apollon is one of the Olympian deities in classical Greek and Roman religion, son of Zeus, the king of the gods, and Leto and the twin brother of Artemis, the goddess of the hunt. Apollon was associated with archery, music and dance, truth and prophecy, healing and diseases, the Sun and light and poetry. He was the most beautiful of the all gods and he was perceived as the ideal of the kouros (ephebe, or a beardless, athletic youth). The lyre is Apollon's most prominent symbol as he was the god of Mousike (art of Muses).

Many temples were dedicated to Apollo in Greece and the Greek colonies. The fisrt and most important of them was built in the 7th century B.C at Delphi, in central Greece.

This statue is a replica of The Apollo Belvedere, which is a celebrated marble sculpture from Classical Antiquity.

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. ***
