About this Piece
A stone wall plaque depicting the cherubic face of Apollo on a bold relief depicting radiating the sun’s rays. Apollo, the son of Zeus, is one of the most important of the Olympian deities of Greek and Roman mythology, variously recognised as a god of music, truth, prophesy, the sun and light and more. The Apollo sunburst was widely used as a motif by King Louis XIV of France, the Sun King. Louis XIV reigned for more than 72 years from 1643 until his death in 1715, still the longest reign for a monarch of any major European nation.
The original 18th Century plaque is in marble abd overlooks the Monument Court at the Soane Museum.
Made in England by skilled craftsmen using a unique form of wet cast production technique for a smoother finish to meet demanding design criteria. This classical stone statue will mature like natural stone whilst exceeding strength requirements set by the United Kingdom Cast Stone Association.
