Apollo Belvedere, c. 350-325 BC: Bonded Marble Resin Sculptural Bust
Item#PD72520
by artist Leochares (4th century BC), in the Vatican Collection
The most worshiped of the 12 gods of ancient Greece, handsome Pythian Apollo was the patron of light, youth and masculine beauty. Our 120-140 AD Roman copy of the lost bronze original was rediscovered in Italy in the late 15th century. This work of classic antiquity, epitomizing the ideals of aesthetic perfection for hundreds of years, is replicated exclusively for us in bonded marble resin. Apollo Belvedere will take a proud place in home, office or gallery.

  • Leochares

    Greek sculptor, probably an Athenian. Leochares was associated in the decoration of the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus. He is known to have made portraits, including a gold and ivory group of Philip, Alexander, and others. The artistic gifts of the Boucher young person are very early recognized by Ramus which gives to the young boy his first rudiments of artistic education. He then associates it work of decoration for the theatre of the Nogent-on-Seine in construction.
