Detailed finest Alabaster plaster statues
Most of the statues are cast in genuinely patinated Alabaster plaster and modelled according to archaeological finds from ancient times. For example, the decorative and very delicate goddess Juno, associated with birth and marriage – a wonderful wedding gift or a present for a partner who has given birth! Juno was the highest of all the Roman gods, the wife of Jupiter. She, therefore, was the patron of the capital Rome and gave the summer month her name. The original that we used for this beautifully crafted representation of the goddess Juno dates back to the 2nd century A.D., found in a villa rustica in the year 1878 at Leudersdorf, Germany. If you want to make a comparison and discover the detailed replica crafting, take you piece to the Rheinisches Landesmuseum in the famous Roman city of Trier, and have a stroll around this city with monuments from Emperor Constantine I, preserved to our days.
