Replica Throne Zeus
The work was executed by the sculptor Grozdan Grozev. It is located in the lobby of the Hotel Park "Stara Zagora".
In ancient mythology from the Balkans, the first image of the heavenly god Zeus appears during the Copper Age, i.e. 5000 years before Christ. Subsequently the god was adopted by the Greeks, appearing in the end of the second (II) millennium BC. Since that period there are many artifacts that represent Zeus riding his royal throne, holding in his left hand a bundle of lightning.
The torso of Zeus the Thunderer, from Stara Zagora is from that time. A ripped head and limbs are a testament to the barbarian presence around at the time. A headless replica of Zeus from Stara Zagora sends us back to that tumultuous era two millennia ago.
