Zeus, king of the gods, was also the god of the sky, the weather, oaths and promises, guests and hosts, and the protector of the family unit. The brother of Poseidon and Hades, he was father to (among others!) Athena and Apollo.
He is shown holding a patera, which is a saucer-like vessel used for pouring libations, which may be a hint as to the votive function of the original figurine.
He 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. Each piece is, therefore, unique. He is mounted on a marble base.
