Represented as holding the earth on his shoulders, the Titan Atlas was responsible for bearing the weight of the heavens on his shoulders, a burden given to him as punishment by Zeus. Father of many stars and a protagonist in one of Hercules’ famous labours, Atlas was also known as a wise man and the founder of astronomy. For Plato, he was the eponymous first king of Atlantis, and this giant of a god also gave his name to a huge mountain range in northern Africa, the great Atlantic Ocean and any large collection of maps.
The master-craftsmanship, hand-painted accents, and antique finishing showcased in this collection of statues boasts remarkable detail from every angle. As with most Cold Cast Bronze Resin* statues, every piece, although delicately designed, feels solid and heavier than expected when held. Each statue comes carefully packaged in a custom sculptured polystyrene inner packing to ensure safe world-wide shipping!
Whether you are looking for a statement décor piece, expanding a personal altar, or just adding to your collection, look no further!
*Cold Cast Bronze Resin: A cold cast bronze statue is created during the process of combining real powdered bronze metal with resin. The statue is then cast into a replica mould, and the resulting piece is breathed into life. This meticulous process allows for cold cast bronze statues to flaunt a higher-quality detail than it’s solid bronze counterpart, as well as an exceptional price difference!
