Poseidon Neptune Ancient Greek god Head Bust Museum Copy. Small size (this bust is also available in medium and large sizes - please see the other 2 listings). This a replica of an original from the Museum of Athens. Made of cast stone and coated with bronze finish. About: This bust was taken from the magnificent full figure which was first called Poseidon, God of the Sea. That identification is now questioned. An arm of the statue was first found in 1926 under the sea in the remains of an old shipwreck north of Athens. The rest of the figure was recovered two years later. The handsome idealized face is superhuman in each spiritual beauty. The posture of the head and the intense expression are appropriate for the greatest of the Gods. That expression is riveting even though the eye sockets are empty. The hair style is that of those men of the first half of the 5th century B.C. who wore their hair long. The front hair is combed forward to form bangs and that at the back is wound in braids about the crown of the head. About 450 B.C.)
