"Antique Bronze Sculpture - Apollo Belvedere - by Leochares"
Apollo Belvedere is a prototypical example of classical statuary. The original of the sculpture on the left was sculptured between 350 and 325 BC and is attributed to the late classical sculptor Leochares. The work depicts the Greek god Apollon. Appolon is the god of light, healing, spring, moral purity and knowledge, as well as the prophecy and arts, especially music and poetry. Moreover he is the god of archers. The sculpture on the left shows the juvenile naked Appolo, son of Zeus, in his role as an archer. This artwork is mounted on a round black marble base and supplied with the artist's signature.
