Inspired by an image on a silver stater (see below) 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 classically renowned as the bringer of winter and is typically depicted with wings and winged feet.
This bronze figurine is cast for us, in Greece, using the traditional 'lost wax' method. As nothing is mass-produced, there will inevitably be slight variations in patination and colouring.
