Late 20th Century French Weathered Garden Cast Stone Statuary of Zeus
Decorate a garden or patio with this elegant antique outdoor statue of Zeus. Carved of stone in France circa 1970, the large figure depicts the Greek god Zeus, bearded head turned to the side. The tall statuary sculpture is in excellent condition with a patinated weathered finish, and evidence of outdoor use. Zeus is the god of the sky and thunder in ancient Greek mythology. As the chief Greek deity, Zeus is considered the ruler, protector, and father of all gods and humans. His name is cognate with the first element of his Roman equivalent Jupiter. His mythology and powers are similar, though not identical, to those of Indio-European deities such as Jupiter, Perkunas, Perun, Indra, and Dyaus. Zeus is often depicted as an older man with a beard and is represented by symbols such as the lightning bolt and the eagle. Measures: 14″ W x 12″ D x 26″ H.
