Details

This is one of the four panels of the Alexander Sarcophagus, the battle scene showing Macedonians and Persians fighting each other.  This is the most beautiful plate of the Alexander Sarcophagus. It shows Alexander the Great on horse wearing his lion's scalp (the first figure), Alexander's closest Companion Hephaestion is also on horse in the middle of the plate, and the Macedonian general Perdiccas (the last figure, also on horse). This ancient sculpture masterpiece is now in the process of being hand-sculpted and for the first time offered to the modern collector of ancient art. We approximate that it will weigh about 170 lbs (77 kg). Although it will be about the same size as our already existing Alexander the Great Sarcophagus Hunt Scene Large Plaque, it may end up becoming heavier because it has contains figures.

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. This item has a hole or a hook in the back for easy wall hanging.

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.
