The "Bust of Zeus" by Eichholtz celebrates a marble head of Zeus Ammon (ca. A.D. 120–160) in The Met's Greek and Roman art collection. This powerful Roman portrait combines a classical Greek image of the bearded Zeus with the ram’s horns of the Egyptian Ammon. Standing tall at 40 cm., this contemporary interpretation is handcrafted to perfection. Its striking resemblance to the original celebrates timeless artistry and mythological splendor.


The Bust of Zeus is inspired by a marble head of Zeus Ammon (ca. A.D. 120–160) at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Zeus Ammon’s sanctuary at the Oasis of Siwa in the Libyan desert was already known when Alexander the Great made his pilgrimage there in 331 B.C. Legend says that the young king was proclaimed son of Zeus Ammon by the Oracle. The original Roman bust of the god combines the ram’s horns of the Egyptian Ammon with the classical Greek depiction of a bearded Zeus. It is thought that perhaps the sculpture was created in Egypt in the years following Alexander’s visit to Siwa. This serene reinterpretation has been carefully hand carved in marble, which delivers beautiful variations in color and natural veins.

Care instructions


Marble is limestone that has metamorphosed and combined with natural elements. It is veined with a variety of colors and patterns. Since marble is easily stained, etched, and dulled, it is important that you know how to take care of it.

Travertine is also a form of limestone. This sedimentary rock is typically formed in springs, rivers, and lakes. It often has a fibrous or concentric appearance and exists in white, tan, cream-coloured, and even rusty varieties.

There are a few basic rules for getting the most out of your marble furniture and ensuring its longevity:

  • Be careful of wet rings forming on the surface after watering flowers or plants.
  • Place coasters or trivets under glasses and dishes to prevent the formation of ring marks.
  • Never expose marble or travertine furniture to sharp objects which can scratch the limestone.
  • Never use vinegar, ammonia, bleach, lemon or orange to clean marble or travertine, as acids can cause these limestones to corrode.
Cleaning & Maintenance

Dust marble and travertine surfaces twice per week with a soft cloth. Both marble and travertine stain very quickly, especially if liquids are left untouched on the surface. When you drop something, clean it up right away. Waiting too long can turn a simple spill into a stain, which can be difficult and sometimes even impossible to get rid of. Immediately clean orange juice, coffee, wine, and other drinks (or food) with strong pigments, and rinse with a clean, damp cloth. Never leave water on marble or travertine surfaces as it can cause stains.

Clean as gently as possible, never using abrasive cleaners or dusting sprays. Wash marble and travertine periodically with a cloth dampened with lukewarm water, and if necessary, some mild dishwashing liquid. Only use soap solutions that are potent enough to wipe off the dirt but mild enough to keep the limestone unharmed. Gently run the cloth over the surface, making a circular motion in the spots that need a little extra pressure. Remove the soap with another damp cloth and wipe the limestone dry.
