The king and his gods

This Gallery includes representations of the king Zeus and his gods Poseidon, Apollo, Athena, Ares and Aphrodite. 

In this picture you see Zeus sitting on his throne. This picture represents Zeus as being the king of the gods. I wanted to show a represententation of how he was viewed.
In this picture you see Zeus standing with his famous lightning bolt. In mythology the lightning bolt is as famous as Zeus himself. This piece goes to demonstrate the power of zeus and demonstrate the usage that became so known of zeus and his lightning bolt.
In this piece you see a statue of the god Apollo. This piece portrays the physical stature of what gods are believed to be. He was also known as the god of healing and medicine and in this piece he has his hand out as he is offering a helping hand.
Aphrodite was the goddess of Love, desire, and beauty. She had a connection to Zeus with not only being a goddess but also being his daughter. This piece seems to be made to portray the sense of beauty that she was known for.
Poseidon was the god of the sea and all its aquatic features. He also had a connection with Zeus as he was his brother. This painting differs from the others as the color of the piece is different. The green color gives a sense of water or even the perception that it could have discoloration due to water.
Ares was the god of war. Ares not only was a god but also the son of Zeus. In this piece you can see the head piece warn by Ares giving a sense of the armor of a warrior. This piece also goes to represent the physique of the god.
Athena was the goddess of reason, intelligence, and literature. Athena was a daughter of Zeus but did not have a mother. This piece uses a similar technique used when creating pieces for philosophers. The appearance of being in a deep thought connects with the legacy of her intelligence.
Hercules was know for being the strongest mortal. He also was a son of Zeus and his last one that was mortal. In this statue Hercules was made to have a physique that would be much more god like than that of a human. Hercules was known for his strength especially in battle and shown here in his stance is the confidence that he had with the abilities he was given.
Artemis was the goddess of chastity, the hunt, the moon, and the natural environment. Artemis like amongst many of the other gods in this gallery she is a child of Zeus.
This piece goes with my description as it is a single piece showing three of the gods involved in this gallery. in this piece you can see the gods Poseidon, Apollo and Aphrodite.
