19th Century Italian Renaissance Style Old Impruneta Terracotta Bust of Apollo

About

A bust of the Roman God Apollo depicted in hand-sculpted detail of old well-patinated terracotta from Impruneta, Florence, circa 1880. After the style of the marble sculpture named Apollo Belvedere (88” height, standing male Archer with cape) believed to be a Roman version of a lost bronze original from 350 BC by the Greek sculptor Leochares. Found in central Italy during the Renaissance, and considered by many to be the greatest ancient sculpture representing the neoclassic era of aesthetic perfection, Apollo Belvedere resides in the Vatican Museum. In Roman mythology, Apollo, son of Zeus, lives on Mount Olympus and is considered as the most beautiful god and aesthetic ideal of youth. Recognized as a god of music, prophecy, healing and archery, as well as the national divinity of the Greeks. Measures: 26.5” H x 19.5” W (16.0” D profile).
