Zeus, God of the sky, ruler of the Olympian gods and usually follows idealized facial features. What I mean is he is allways portrayed to have a curly, thick beard, curly hair, has an aged face, and either a blank exprestion (like this bust) or a vengefull look. Every painting, drawing, and or sculpture follow these basic rules to recreate that which has never been seen, but described through stories. That is why most if not all Zeus artworks are idealized.
