Crafted by the skilled hands of French artisan Pierre Le Faguays, this sculpture stands as an exquisite and detailed representation of the Greek goddess Diana. In Roman mythology, Diana was revered as the goddess of the hunt, associated with wild animals, woodlands, and the moon. This particular piece captures Diana in an arabesque-like pose, radiating immense strength and grace. The attention to detail is evident in the flowing drapery of her gown and the intricate floral-shaped headpiece adorning her ears, framing a young face filled with absolute jubilation. The artist's masterful portrayal of Diana draws inspiration from the statues of Tanagra, showcasing originality and grace. The sculpture reflects the classical elegance and timeless beauty of this revered goddess. As the twin sister of Apollo, Diana's divine lineage is highlighted, with Jupiter and Latona as her parents. The significance of Diana in ancient Roman religion endures, with shrines dedicated to her found in Capua and Aricia. The base of the sculpture bears the signature "Pierre Le Faguays," a testament to the artist's acclaim. Crafted in bronze and set atop a black marble base, this piece is more than a mere sculpture; it's a timeless treasure. The fine craftsmanship, attention to detail, and the inherent beauty of Diana's portrayal make it a must-have for art enthusiasts and collectors alike. Awarded a medal of honor in 1927, Pierre Le Faguays' legacy lives on through this captivating representation of the goddess Diana, a symbol of strength, nature, and divine grace.
