"Mythology Bronze Sculpture - Zeus - signed B. Thorvaldsen"
The artist Bertel Thorvaldsen liked to use motifs of the ancient mythology. So it influenced the creation of his sculptures. Well-known works are the figures Mercury and Venus, Ganymed and Hebe, the daughter of Zeus. The artist emphasized straight lines and clear forms after the example of the classical-ancient art. The illustration of nakedness shows the concept of Antiquity. Zeus is pictured in a lot of works, because he is the highest Olympian God in the Greek mythology. This figure is made of 100 per cent bronze and has the signature of Bertel Thorvaldsen. The muscles of Zeus are clearly elaborated.
