  • more about the Akropolis Alexander

    The original in Pentelic marble, now in the Akropolis Museum in Athens, was created by the sculptor Leochares. It was found in 1886 near the Erechtheion on the Akropolis, and it depicts Alexander at a young age, as he would have been during his only visit to Athens, soon after the Battle of Chaironeia in 338 BC.

  • about the bronze collection

    The bronze pieces are cast in Greece using the traditional lost wax method. As nothing is mass-produced, there will inevitably be slight variations in texture, patina, and colour. No two pieces are ever the same. If mounted on a marble base, it will be a black or very dark grey base. There may be a variation of some millimetres in the dimensions of the base from time to time.

    It's All Greek is proud to have been working with the Semitekolo family foundry since 1999. It has been a privilege to handle these gorgeous pieces and to sell them to customers all over the world.
