This reproduction of the bust of Poseidon-Zeus has a magnificent presence, making it ideal for interior decoration (living rooms, lobbies, libraries, and offices). It is not suitable for outdoor use.

Sculpture reproducing the head of the God of Cape Artemision, a Greek bronze statue dated around 460 BC. The original sculpture is in the National Archaeological Museum of Athens. It represents a god, possibly Zeus or Poseidon, in a position to throw a weapon, a lightning bolt, or a trident. It belongs to the Severe Style, a transitional period between Archaic and Classical art, characterized by the abandonment of the frontality and rigidity typical of earlier periods. The figure still stands on both feet, despite the emerging dynamism of the Classical period.

In Greek mythology, Poseidon is the god of the sea, earthquakes, and horses. One of the twelve Olympian gods, son of Cronus and Rhea, and brother of Zeus and Hades, Poseidon rules over all bodies of water, including seas, rivers, and lakes, as well as earthquakes. He is often depicted as a mature, bearded man holding a trident, with which he can control the waters and cause earthquakes. He is credited with the creation of the horse, a symbol of strength and beauty.

In myths and literature, such as Homer’s Odyssey, Poseidon appears as a feared god due to his volatile temperament and his ability to unleash furious sea storms. In art, he is often shown driving a chariot pulled by sea horses with fish tails and accompanied by his wife Amphitrite. He is associated with numerous love affairs with goddesses, nymphs, and mortal women, and his descendants include notable figures such as the Cyclops Polyphemus or Triton, who is half-human and half-fish.
