Description

The olive wreath also known as kotinos was the prize for the winner at the ancient Olympic Games. It was an olive branch, of thewild- olive tree that grew at Olympia, intertwined to form a circle or a horse-shoe. According to Pausanias it was introduced by Heracles as a prize for the running race winner to honour his father Zeus. In the ancient Olympic Games there were no gold, silver, or bronze medals. There was only one winner per event, crowned with an olive wreath made of wild-olive leaves from a sacred tree near the temple of Zeus at Olympia. Olive wreaths were given out during the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens in honor of the ancient tradition, because the games were being held in Greece. All our bronze items, are cast in Greece, using the traditional 'lost wax' method. Each piece is unique. As they are not mass-produced, there will inevitably be slight variations in patination and colouring. The base is made of marble material.(212100220101)
