This remarkable marble statue of Poseidon portrays the god of the sea in a powerful and imposing manner. Poseidon is depicted in a state of undress, emphasizing his muscular physique. His body exhibits remarkable attention to detail, highlighting the strength and vitality associated with this ancient deity. One notable feature of this statue is the manner in which Poseidon's mantle is draped over his left shoulder. The folds and contours of the mantle are intricately carved, lending a sense of realism to the sculpture. This arrangement adds an element of grandeur and authority to Poseidon's appearance. This artifact, originating from Byblos, which was historically significant in the papyrus trade, offers a fascinating glimpse into the art and craftsmanship of the Roman Period. It serves as both a representation of Poseidon, the god of the sea, and a testament to the artistic achievements of that era.Image ID#: 32814 / Category: Arts, Architecture / Price: 499$
