Ares God of War
Ares is the god of war, one of the twelve Olympian gods and the son of Zeus and Hera. In literature Ares represents the violent and physical untamed aspect of war, which is in contrast to Athena who represents military strategy and generalship as the goddess of wisdom.
Although Ares embodied the physical aggression necessary for success in war, the Greeks were ambivalent toward him because he was a dangerous overwhelming force who was insatiable in battle.
The second in the ARH Studios line of Greek Gods, Ares was sculpted by Alex Pereira and Arahom Radjah. As a counterpart to Athena, Ares is stepping on two dead soldiers of Athena’s army in the battle of Troy. An incredible addition to any collection, this statue features two different heads, one with ARES wearing his battle helmet, and another without it.
