Roman hairdressing scene
Museum piece for home
The relief coiffure scene is a replica of an exhibit from the Roman period. In the Landesmuseum in Trier, the original is from the 3rd century AD and comes from Neumagen on the Moselle. Such wall reliefs decorated stone monuments and perhaps houses in the Roman Empire. On the relief hairdressing scene can be seen how four servants together fix the hair of their mistress.
into the everyday life in a Roman household offers the relief hairdressing scene. You see the mistress of the house sitting in a woven basket chair, while four young servants are doing the hair of their mistress. One combs the hair, one holds a mirror and the other two hold amphorae with oils. The relief hairdressing scene shows exactly the hair of the slave girls pinned up into topknots. Exactly the same scene could have taken place in a Roman household.
- Hairdressing scene dimensions: 45x35cm
- with back hanging
- real alabaster plaster, patinated
Original wall relief
The relief hairdressing scene is made of patinated alabaster plaster. This plaster is a natural material of high quality. The very fine plaster dries out extremely hard and is also used in restoration and arts and crafts. The suspension attached to the back ensures easy attachment of the 45 x 35 cm hairdressing scene on the wall. The depiction is incredibly detailed. Ornate columns and wrinkled robes are as clearly carved out as the individual faces. You can see exactly how attentively the lady of the house, feet set on a footstool, watches her slave girls at work.
Of course, the relief hairdressing scene is an absolutely original wall decoration in a hairdressing salon. But also in the living room the relief unfolds its very own charm. The depiction stimulates the viewer to talk about the hairdressing scene. It is depicted so vividly that you feel directly transported to that time.
Then to be able to say "The original hangs in the Landesmuseum in Trier" gives the relief Frisierszene even more weight.
