Description An academic anatomical sculpture nude torso of Apollo, cast in plaster from a classical sculpture. Apollo is one of the Olympian deities in classical Greek and Roman religion and Greek and Roman mythology. The national divinity of the Greeks, Apollo has been recognized as a god of archery, music and dance, truth and prophecy, healing and diseases, the Sun and light, poetry, and more. One of the most important and complex of the Greek gods, he is the son of Zeus and Leto, and the twin brother of Artemis, goddess of the hunt. Seen as the most beautiful god and the ideal of the kouros (ephebe, or a beardless, athletic youth), Apollo is considered to be the most Greek of all the gods. Apollo is also the personification of the beauty and the perfect representation of greek canon of beauty.
The canon of beauty is the aesthetic ideal regarding the body that is recognized by society, closely linked to the era and to the cultural, economic and social situation of a people. It collects the best and most desirable characteristics of physical beauty. This canon has been expressed in various forms throughout history and handed down through artistic expressions. This item deals exclusively with the canon of beauty that concerns the human being. For a broader discussion see the items canon (art), beauty and beautiful.
