ROMAN DIANA FIGURINE

Circa 1st-2nd century AD. A cast bronze figurine of the goddess Diana in an advancing stance, her right leg straight and left foot slightly raised, her left arm extended with the palm flat; the goddess dressed in a chiton pinned at the right shoulder with a disc brooch; the face rounded and youthful with large eyes and small nose and mouth, the back of the head open, once having a lid fitted. Copper-alloy, 430 grams, 166 mm.

Condition
Very fine condition, the right arm lost in antiquity.

Provenance
From a deceased estate.

Footnotes
The left arm is a separate casting attached by the peg-and-socket method; the outstretched hand may have been intended to rest on the head of a stag, as seen on the Diana of Versailles statue.
