  • more about the Venus de Milo

    The original Aphrodite from the island of Milos is one of the most famous works of ancient Greek sculpture. Her arms and original plinth have been lost. From an inscription that was on the plinth, however, she is thought to be the work of Alexandros of Antioch ca 130-100 BC, rather than the work of the master 4th century BC sculptor Praxiteles, as originally thought. She is now in the Louvre.

  • 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.
