Reproduction of a statuette in clay representing the God Jupiter seated on his throne. He hold a scepter in his left hand and a lightning in the right. An eagle is represented on his side. An original piece, in bronze, is preserved at the Museum of the Louvre in Paris.

Jupiter is the ruler of the gods. He seized the heavenly throne dispossessing his father Saturn. The Greeks worshipped under the name of Zeus, and the Romans, retaining that name and doing so follow the word pater who wants to say father, made "Zeus pater", thus becoming Jupiter. Father of gods and men, founder of empires, he is the protector of the order and freedom. We represent it sitting on a throne of gold or ivory, holding lightning, sign the power hitting, and on the other hand a sceptre, emblem of force that governs. The Eagle, oak and Cedars of the mountains were devoted to him.
