Olympian calm

Although the facial features have been damaged by corrosion, the artist clearly intended to give the god a calm and peaceful expression. The face, which is leaning slightly to one side, is that of a man who is sure of his role and position.
The details are particularly fine: every curl of the hair and beard is elaborately worked, and the pupils are indicated by small holes which may once have been inlaid with silver (as they were on other statuettes).
