The Early Classical Period (480-450BC)
The Early Classical Period, which lasted from 480 to 450BC, marks the change from the earlier severe style towards the classical ideal.
Contrast this early bust of Zeus with the later bronze statue of Poseidon, the Greek god of the sea, found in the Mediterranean Sea.
The technique of hollow cast bronze was developed in the 6th Century BC.
