bronze proud ibex

Symbol of energy, vitality, long life and fertility. The elegant ibex, also known as the "Kri-Kri", is the bearded, wild, and shy goat of Crete, with thick, curved, ridged horns.
In Greek mythology, Zeus was reared on Crete by the goat Amalthea, whom he then, in gratitude for looking after him, turned into the constellation Capricorn.
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.
