Fine art portrait of Apollo
Origin of Apollo Giustiniani
Apollo was the son of Zeus and Leto and the twin brother of the goddess Artemis. Apollo is the God of many things: archery, music and dance, truth and prophecy, healing and diseases, Sun and light, poetry, and more.
Apollo is portrayed as a bust made of cracked concrete, which represents that an old/patinated piece of art can still be a piece of art, even though the material is damaged/cracked.
This bust of Apollo Giustiniani is a plaster cast of the original marble head statue in the British Museum, London, based on a lost Greek bronze original of the 5th Century BC. In addition to the British Museum and SMK, you can also find this sculpture at the Royal Academy of Arts, London.
