  • more about the original bust of Hygieia

    She was the daughter of Asklepios, and the grand daughter of Apollo. Her name gives us our word hygiene. The original marble head, on display in the National Archaeological Museum in Athens, was found in the Temple of Apollo in Tegea in the central Peloponnese. She is probably the work of the 4th century BC sculptor Skopas.

  • 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.
