This is a cast stoned with antique finish reproduction of the bust of Alexander the Great found in the Acropolis of Athens and now in the Archeological Museum of Athens. In the museum original the nose is broken. Our customers have the option to own this impressive piece of sculpture as it is in the museum (as pictured here) or with the restored nose as we have restored it and are the first to offer it. This bust is a reduction of the original size.
Made of cast stone. Cast stone is a type of gypsum cement whose properties are much different from plaster of paris which is what most sculpture shops use. Unlike plaster, which is soft, light and weak, cast stone is hard, heavy and strong. Cast stone feels like, and is heavy like a real stone would be, which can be experienced as soon you try to lift it.
This item is also available in other color finishes - if you like other then the pictured finish, please chose from the pull down menu above. To see pictures of our cast stone finishes please visit our "Cast Stone Sculptures FAQ". There is no extra charge for any other finish you chose.
