Zeus Ammon – buy the bronze or marble replica bust in real size

After the Greeks colonised Cyrenaica – now part of Libya – and also established settlements in the lower Nile Delta, they associated Zeus with the Egyptian god Amun-Ra, who was often depicted with the head of a ram. The features of both deities are combined in this marble bust.
 
The worship of Amun, who was called Ammon by the Greeks, also spread to the north of the Greek peninsula, where statues and temples were erected in Delphi, Sparta, Thebes, Aphytis and Megalopolis. The poet Pindar wrote a hymn to Ammon, which is engraved on a triangular column in Thebes. In Thebes, Ammon became the most important local deity.

The Roman marble version of the bust can be found in the Munich State Collection of Classical Antiquities on Königsplatz. It is a copy of a lost Greek bronze original from the late 5th century B.C. The replica offered here is based on a plaster cast of the Roman marble copy from the Munich Collection of Classical Antiquities.

And the new moulding of the bust by sculptors from a single block of white marble. If you are interested in such a mould, please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to receiving your e-mail or phone call.
 

Patinating the bust

Patination marks the final step in the finishing process of a bronze bust. The patina simulates the natural oxidation process that causes the bronze to weather differently over time, depending on the environmental influences on the copper alloy. We have various patina recipes in our repertoire, including one that corresponds well to the patina of preserved antique bronze busts. We will be happy to provide you with samples of suitable patina in advance.
 

Individualisation of the Zeus Ammon replica bust

The bust purchased from us is engraved in the base with a serial number, date of manufacture and our company logo. The base is also engraved with your name, a lettering, the occasion of production, your own company logo or additional engraving as required.

Memory cast in bronze in the radiant light of antiquity

Ancient Greek bronze busts and their masterfully crafted Roman marble replicas were the sensual and visual mirror of these two advanced civilisations for over a millennium.

The bust made for you and with your name as the donor will forever be a reminder of your personality and achievements in the ancient traditions of Delphi and Rome.
 

Locations for the installation of ancient statues & list of parks with ancient sculptures

Antique statues are hardly available in the original. Since their rediscovery in the Renaissance, expensive replicas have been made for castles, their parks and also for the mansions of the wealthy bourgeoisie. During this period, a canon for the installation and placement of these works of art was created that developed into modern times. Here you will find an overview of particularly beautiful locations for antique statues. We also offer you an overview of some publicly accessible gardens and parks, each of which has an impressive collection of ancient sculptures. With specific details of which statues can be seen where. Go travelling, let yourself be inspired!
