This cameo represents Theseus. On the helmet is sculpted Theseus defeating the Centaur. Theseus was the founder-king of Athens, son of Aegeus and Poseidon, both of whom Aethra had slept with in one night. Theseus was a founder-hero, like Perseus, Cadmus, or Heracles, all of whom battled and overcame foes that were identified with an archaic religious and social order. As Heracles was the Dorian hero, Theseus was the Athenian founding hero.
Handmade solid yellow bronze medallion. Reproduction of a 17th c. cameo.
The cameo is 35 mm x 30 mm
I make my own molds and do not use the technique of casting so each piece is individually made. Each piece is signed in the back. Bronze bail soldered in the back.
Different 14k gold filled chain length and thickness options are available.
The med chain is 2.3mm.
The thick chain is 3.5mm.
Gold filled has 100 times more gold than plated thus does not rub or peel off.
Also, a 4 mm wide black genuine Greek leather option.
