Contact Dealer For Price
The dreamy, classical beauty of this woman almost certainly identifies her as a goddess, perhaps a Romanized version of the Egyptian Isis, or Persephone, reluctant queen of the underworld. The loops on her head were probably for the attachment of a crown of flowers, while the holes in her neck suggest that her missing body may have been of ivory or wood covered with precious gold or silver. She appears lost in a reverie: wistful, lovely, a little sad--as if mourning the passing of ancient glories. - (FZ.034)
