  • more about the original Ephebe

    The Marathon Youth, or Ephebe, is thought to have been the work of Praxiteles, dating to the 4th century BC. The original full size bronze statue was caught in fishermen's nets in the Bay of Marathon in 1925. He is now in the National Archaeological Museum in Athens. Some think that he may be Hermes, god of transitions.

  • 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.
