Bronze bust of Apollo dating back to the last century.
Apollo (in ancient Greek: Ἀπόλλων, Apóllōn; in Latin: Apollo) is a deity of the Greek and Roman religion.
God of the Sun (whose chariot he drives), of all Arts, of music, of prophecy, of poetry, of medical arts (the god of medicine is in fact his son Asclepius), of plagues and of science that enlightens the intellect.
It is a bronze statue produced with the lost-wax technique. It was made from a cast of the original made at the beginning of the 20th century by the Chiurazzi foundry, a historical foundry in Naples. This foundry also produced reproductions of statues from the main museums, and fed the “souvenir” market for travellers of the late 19th and early 20th century, the Grand Tour travellers.
