Hephaestion Head Bust from Getty Museum reproduction replica. Hephaestion was Alexander the Great’s closest friend and most trusted general companion. Our Hephaestion head reproduction is restoration of the Getty Museum original. We have restored the broken nose and all the chips on the face and hair, giving life to Hephaestion. This is how the sculpture looked like when the ancient sculptor completed it more then 2,300 years ago.
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.
