This gallery includes representations of Greek gods and goddesses in painting, sculpture, and other mediums. Apollo is the twin brother of Olympian goddess Artemis. Hercules is the roman equivalent of the Greek god Heracles.

The painting portrays gods Poseidon and Aeolus on two different yachts. The color combinations used gives this piece balance and unity as the work appears pleasing to the eye.
The statue of Zeus is considered an important religious sanctuary in the Greek world. The piece depicts the king sitting on the throne with his feet on the footstool. The pose gives emphasis to the work as his figure appear dominant. The missing right hand definitely attracts attention.
Shown is Eros (Cupid), the winged child-god of love sleeping on a lion skin. The line and form of the god really shows the separation between it and the lion skin. There really isn't no color dominance as the statuette appears simply white.
This statue represents Diana, also known as Artemis. She is the goddess of wild hunting and animals. The statue appears to have balance as the statue looks to be in a model position.
This sculpture represents Apollo who is the twin brother of Artemis. He became a reigning god due to his wisdom and persuasiveness. The space around the statue creates depth which gives it eye-catching attention.
The figure portrays the greek god carrying a club over his shoulder and holding a lion skin in his hand. The size of the head can be compared to the rest of his body referring to proportion.
Minerva is one of four parts that represents the Golden Age. This is a preparatory cartoon for the ceiling of the Sala Funi. The colors are very light and gives it unity giving completeness to the piece.
This painting portrays the goddess Venus rising from the ocean as an adult. The variety of figures shown here in the painting captures attention of viewers.
This statuette shows a giant hurling a rock at his opponent. It represents the battle between the gods and the giants. Emphasis is included due to the act of the giant throwing the rock which captured my attention.
