Cast Marble statues are made from a composite material in which natural crushed Marble stone is mixed with a small quantity of resin that works as a glue. The mixture is then poured into a mold of the statue design. Only in our sculptures 90% of the finished sculpture is natural crushed Greek Marble stone, which gives it a look and feel of solid natural marble. All sculptures are finished by hand. This strong material is water and weather resistant and can be washed with most cleaning agents. Please note: Our statues are not carved.
Antinoüs, (born c. 110 Bithynia—died 130 Egypt), homosexual lover of the Roman emperor Hadrian, deified by the emperor after his death in Egypt, where he drowned. Hadrian erected temples to him throughout the empire and founded a city, named Antinoöpolis, in his honour, near the place where he died. An obelisk, now in Rome near the Porta Maggiore, marked his tomb. Many sculptures, gems, and coins survive depicting Antinoüs as a model of youthful beauty.
The original marble sculpture is located in the Pio Clementino collection of The Vatican Museums (Inv. 251).
The portrait features Antinous' charactaristic fleshy, youthful beauty with particularly 'severe' corkscrew curls, a common style of his idealized likeness. The peculiar features of this bust have led many to propose it as a 'true' portrait of Antinous
