Details

Hephaestion Plaque - Detail from the Alexander the Great Sarcophagus Large Plaque. This plaque is a section-detail from the one of the four panels of the Alexander Sarcophagus, the battle scene showing Macedonians and Persians fighting each other. Alexander's closest Companion Hephaestion is depicted on a horse in the middle of the plate. This ancient sculpture masterpiece is for the first time offered to the modern collector of ancient art.

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.
