bronze statue: winged Boreas
- Height: 12cm Width :11cm Depth:3cm
Inspired by an image on a silver coin dating to 490 BC from the Aegean island of Peparethos, Boreas, the North Wind, is shown holding two wreaths. These are thought to represent his twin sons Calais and Zetes who, according to legend, assisted Jason in his quest for the Golden Fleece. Also known as the Earth Destroyer, Boreas is known as the bringer of winter and is typically depicted with wings and winged feet.
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.
