A little bit about Apollo: Apollois one of theOlympian deitiesinclassical GreekandRoman religionandGreekandRoman mythology.
The national divinity of the Greeks, Apollo has been recognized as a god of archery, music and dance, truth and prophecy, healing and diseases, theSunand light, poetry, and more. One of the most important and complex of the Greek gods, he is the son ofZeusandLeto, and the twin brother ofArtemis, goddess of the hunt. Seen as the most beautiful god and the ideal of thekouros(ephebe, or a beardless, athletic youth), Apollo is considered to be the most Greek of all the gods. He'd look amazing on your mantle, wouldn't he? Or your piano, dresser, really an elegant statement piece like this belongs anywhere.As far as the age of this piece goes, I'm not 100% sure. The gentleman I bought it from said it was in his home when he was growing up in the'60s, but he had felt like it was old then. So I'm guessing it was part of the plaster/chalkware craze of the 30s and 40s. This item is in the category "Art\Art Sculptures".
