Roman loving kissing couple
Love is in the air!
Isn't it nice to see loving couples in a world where love is not always taken for granted? This small statuette shows that even in Rome love was an important issue. It shows a couple holding each other in an intimate embrace and kissing. The statuette ""loving couple"" was found in the temple district Altbachtal in Trier around the second or third century A.D. This replica is made of fine alabaster plaster, a natural material, which is contrary to the usual building plaster more durable, because it dries harder and is therefore able to withstand wind and weather. The statue has a height of about 10cm. The originals can be admired in the museums of Trier, Cologne and August (Switzerland).
Blessed by Venus
Venus was the goddess of love and beauty. She was held in high esteem by the people and was very often worshipped and asked for support. This loving couple clearly has her blessing and, according to a myth, will bring good luck in love to anyone who touches these statues.
- 2nd-3rd century AD.

This statuette has a variety of uses, especially because it is relatively small and therefore very portable. As a visual aid in school, it will definitely fascinate every student and bring a piece of Rome into their classroom. This gives students a completely new relationship to the topic and allows them to be carried away. Visual material is always something special for a student and gives students some pleasure even in relatively monotonous classroom routine.
However, this little loving couple is very suitable for giving away or decorating their own room. It is best to give the statuette to newly in love or even longer loving couples.
The loving couple is an eye-catcher in any, living room. Combined with other small statuettes, it transports you to the world of ancient Rome. Feel what it means to have Venus on your side. Maybe with the power of the gods they will find a partner and become a loving couple, like the intimately embraced lovers on the statuette.
