Plato was one of the great Greek philosophers, and one of three whose theories and writings helped to found modern Western philosophy. This Plato Statue pays homage to this great thinker wherever it is displayed. Plato was the student of Socrates, a man who perhaps started Plato on his path to greatness, and whose own teachings continued on through Aristotle, his own student. Plato was, for the most part, a renaissance man before his time, having specialized in various subjects, and it was also Plato who founded the Academy in Athens, which was the first institute of higher learning in the Western world. Some of Platos most famous works are, perhaps, his Socratic dialogues, which allow us to glimpse his teacher through him, and are woven with conventional pearls of wisdom that remain fairly true and valid, even to this day. This statue depicts the scholar and philosopher as he sits contemplating a book, titled The Republic. He dresses in Grecian robes, and sits atop a square pedestal that is decorated with his name, his date of birth, his date of death, as well as with four quotes that can be linked back to Plato himself. The statue is crafted entirely in cold cast bronze, which is a form of cold cast resin that is mixed with powdered bronze metal to give the final product a stunning bronze metal luster. It has also been hand painted, which infuses a touch of color into the work, while also enhancing its overall detail. The statue stands approximately 11.75 inches tall and measures 4.25 inches long and 3.75 inches wide. Students and followers of philosophy, as well as modern thinkers in general, will likely appreciate this Plato Statue, as there is no better statue to have watching over your own musings than that of the master, himself.
