General

A substantial bronze piece, with great detail, adding distinction as either a centrepiece, or main attraction to any dwelling. Many statues of Zeus & Poseidon have been created over the years, but probably the most famous statue is the Artemisium bronze. This bust is a reproduction of the head of the Artemisium Bronze. The legendary Artemisium full bodied hollow bronze, of either Zeus or Poseidon, was found in 1926, off the cape of Artemisium, Greece, in a sunken ship. Some experts believe he throws a trident, & some believe he casts a thunderbolt. Eitherway, it is a legendary example of an early bronze statue. All my bronzes are of pure metals, & not resin based products.
