Beautifully hand-carved in the rolling hills of Tarn, East Toulouse, these Apollo Statues replicate those that decorated the courtyards and terraces of ancient Greece. The family business who crafts them spend months researching their colour palettes, ensuring they maintain historical accuracy down to the finest of details. Finished in a classic patina, these statues hold an antique weathered look as if they have been pulled straight out of Athens.
The Greek God of music, poetry and the sun, Apollo was seen as the perfect blend of physical superiority and moral virtue, characteristics that are depicted through his bow and arrow held by his side. Exquisitely made, an incredible level of detail is achieved. This shines through within the natural curves of his body and the twists and turns of the shawl, which seemingly, as if made of fabric, flutters gracefully in the wind. Finally, at his feet, a furry companion.
