A Late 19th Century Continental Polished Bronze Of Fortuna After Giambologna
A lovely Grand Tour Late 19th Century Continental Polished Bronze Of Fortuna After Giambologna. Fortuna was the Roman goddess of luck & fortune. This well cast bronze copy of the model by renaissance sculptor Giambologna (1529-1608). Nicely detailed Holding aloft a cornucopia, scantily clad and raised upon a face blowing the winds of the Boreas, the Greek personification of the north wind. Beautifully decorated to the cylindrical plinth with cherub detail depicting the Arts. Highly decorative, well executed and of good size at 33 inches tall. There is a join to her raised left arm, I am not sure if this is the way it was constructed or an old repair, either way, it doesn’t really detract from the piece. Dimensions: H 33 in. x W 9 in. x D 9 in.
