Description
Jupiter, king of the gods, stands before us in majestic splendor. At one time he leaned on a staff, and in his missing hand he most probably carried a thunderbolt, symbol of his power. A work of this enormous vigor and regal beauty almost certainly imitates a larger statue, perhaps a cult image at some famous temple site. The relatively small size of the god in no way diminishes his aura of divinity. - (Z.0079)
