Seller: aeonamaltheas (69) 100%, Location: London, London, Ships to: GB & many other countries, Item: 302130281068 Father of Gods and man who rules the Olympian Gods of Mount Olympus. He is the god of Skies and Thunder in Greek Mythology. His symbols are the thunderbolt, eagle, bull and oak. Zeus is the child of Cronus and Rhea, and the youngest of his siblings. In most traditions he is married to Hera, although, at the oracle of Dodona, his consort is Dione: according to the Illian, he is the father of Aphrodite by Dione. He is known for his erotic escapades. These resulted in many godly and heroic offspring, including Athena, Apollo, Artemis, Hermes, Persephone, Dionysus, Perseus, Heracles, Helen of Troy, Minos and the Muses (by Mnemosyne). by Hera, he is usually said to have fathered Ares, Hebe, and Hephaestus. Zeus was identified with the Roman god Jupiter and associated in the syncretic classical imagination with various other deities, such as the Egyptian Ammon and the Etruscan Tinia. He, along with Dionysus, absorbed the role of the chief Phrygian god Sabazios in the Syncretic deity known in Rome as Sabazius. The Seleucid ruler Antiochus IV Epiphanes erected a statue of Zeus Olympios in the Judean Temple in Jerusalem. Hellenizing Jews referred to this statue as Baal Shamen (in English, Lord of Heaven) The statue named the Artemision Bronze, was found off the coast of Euboea in Cape Artemision. This sculpture is now located in the National Archaeological Museum in Athens. The sculptor of this piece is disputed; it has been attributed to Kalamis, Onatas or Myron. This debate extends as to whether or not the statue represents Zeus or Poseidon. Scholarship is divided on this subject as the missing attribute, the Trident (Poseidon) or Thunder Bolt (Zeus), is missing. Mylonas (1944:160) suggests that ‘the lack of any ruggedness, and the spiritual quality which emanates from the bronze, will…identify it as…Zeus. Originating from a sculptor's studio with more than twenty year presence in the greek market this statuette of Zeus stands 9.4" height (24cm) Painted by hand is the artist's perception of the classic Artemision Bronze.
