Details

This is a hand-sculptured and 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 or with the restored nose as you can see it here. Alexander III the Great, the King of Macedonia and conqueror of the Persian Empire is considered one of the greatest military geniuses of all times. He was inspiration for later conquerors such as Hannibal the Carthaginian, the Romans Pompey and Caesar, and Napoleon. Alexander was son of Philip II, King of Macedonia, and Olympias, the princess of neighboring Epirus. Having conquered the entire Persian Empire he made Macedonia the largest world empire, stretching from Europe to India. For the next three centuries the Macedonians ruled most of this vast area, ending with Cleopatra VII in 30 BC, the last Macedonian ruler of Egypt. This period of 300 years is known today as "Hellenistic".

Specification

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.
