Roman Bronze Sculpture of a Priestess - FZ.177 - For Sale

Roman Bronze Sculpture of a Priestess - FZ.177
Price: $6000.00
This exquisite draped statuette perhaps represents a Roman Empress in the guise of a Syrian priestess. Her tall, conical hat no doubt carries a ritual significance. The Severan dynasty, with its Syrian connections, encouraged the worship of the sun god Elagabalus. This may provide a clue to the statue's origins. Though this small figure has always carried herself with erect dignity, time has lent her an even greater grandeur. - (FZ.177)
