Our Large Apollo Bust is a reduced reproduction of the Italian antique version from 1780 of Apollo Belvedere. The Roman marble statue from c. 120-140 can be seen in the Vatican Museums and is thought to be a copy of a Greek original from BC 350-325 made of bronze by Leochares. The famous Diana of Versailles statue or so called Diana Chasseresse is a Roman copy of the Greek original by Leochares as well. It is well-known that Apollo and Diana (or Artemis in Greek mythology) were twins, children of Zeus and Leto. Consequently our Apollo Bust coupled with our Diana Chasseresse Bust results in a breathtaking and harmonious interior attracting the attention of anyone who enters the room.
Apollo in both Greek and Roman mythology was the god of music, poetry, art, archery and as well the leader of the muses.
Our sculpture is produced by a unique and proprietary dry casting process. They are made of white Carrara marble and over 90% of the finished sculpture is natural marble which gives it a look and feel of natural marble. They are finished by hand.
