17/18th Century Marble Bust of Young Woman

$5,500

About

This bust is a fragment of a full figure marble statue of a woman. A modern base has been made for it. She wears classical garb. Her left hand seems to be holding up the garment over her breast. Her right arm is missing. Her head bent forward which gives the depth of 18 from her forehead to her back. On her head is a wreath of what appears to be wheat. This leads us to believe that she might be a rendition of the goddess Ceres as known to the Greeks and Demeter as known to the Romans. She is the goddess of the harvest. The word cereal is derived from her name. The modern black painted wooden base measures 21.5 wide, 13.5 deep and 1.75 tall. Measurement below are of the bust itself.
