Apollo Belvedere, c. 350-325 BC: Bonded Marble Resin Bust
Roman bust statue by artist Leochares (4th century BC) 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.
