About

The stunning statue is raised by its original rectangular Rouge Griotte marble base with a beautiful mottled design and a fine ormolu bottom band. The two maidens above are believed to be Greek goddesses Dione and Aphrodite. The beautiful goddesses are laying, one holds a scroll and a divider, while the other holds a weight. Both are draped in wonderfully executed and detailed flowing fabric and have their hair in updos. All original warm patina throughout. Ferdinand Barbedienne (1810 – 1892), a renowned French Bronzier.
