Early classical ancient Greek bronze statue of Zeus or Poseidon, circa 450 BC. Athens National Arcjaeological Museum, cat no X15161. Wall art print by Photographer Paul E Williams . This bronze statue was found in the sea off Cape Artemision in northern Euobea. Zeus or Poseidon is shown making a great stride. His lefy arm is extended forward and his righy arm extends back which would have held a thunderbolt, if Zeus, or a trident if Poseidon. The identification of the statue is controversial though it ios more likely Zeus. It is one of the few preserved original statues of Severe Style, notable for the exuisite rendering of motion and anatomy. Iy is certainly the work of a great sculptor of the early ancient Greek Classical period .
