Strong willed and powerful Diana (Greek name Artemis) was the goddess of the hunt and of the moon with deadly arrows. She was the daughter of Zeus and Leto, twin sister of Apollo. In the Battle of the Giants, she killed the Giant Gration with the help of Heracles (Heracles). One famous story said that the twins shot all of Niobe’s fourteen children dead with their arrows to punish her slight to Leto. Remained unmarried, Artemis was also the protectress of children, always accompanied by deer and her beloved animals.

Aphrodite Holding Fruit Standing Statue
Aphrodite Holding Fruit Standing Statue

Aphrodite was the symbol of female beauty and Goddess of Love, identified in Rome with Venus. Although Homer describes Aphrodite as the daughter of Zeus and Dion, the more popular view was that she was conceived in the foam of the ocean from the seed of Uranus. Dropped there when he was castrated, her name meaning "foam-born". Aphrodite was married to Hephaestus, but she loved Ares and she was known for her many love affairs, notably with Adonis and Anchises. Aphrodite the most beautiful woman in the world, inspired lust in all the humans and other creatures of the planet. No one could escape the traps that she set to amuse herself with the doings of love-crazed men and women. The passion which she planted in the human soul was the force that propelled fertilization and reproduction. Her symbols were the laurel, the pomegranate, the dove, the swan, the hare and the ram, all of them connected with physical love and reproduction.

Pallas Athena Standing with Nike Statue
Pallas Athena Standing with Nike Statue

Athena was the Greek Goddess of wisdom and women's crafts. She was also a defender against evil and a warrior Goddess par excellence. She was the daughter of Zeus and Metis. When Metis became pregnant, Gaia and Uranus told Zeus that after giving birth to a daughter, she would then have a son by Zeus who would later dethrone him. On Gaia's advice, Zeus swallowed Metis. When the time came for the child to be born, Zeus was afflicted with a dreadful headache and sought the help of Hephaestus who split his skull with a bronze axe to relieve the pain. A girl in full armour sprang forth from his head: It was Athena. Athena's attributes were the spear, the helmet and the Aegis (a goat-skin shield). She attached the Gorgon's head which Perseus had given her to her shield, and this turned to stone every living thing that looked at it. Made from cultured marble, measures 10"H.

thalia muse of comedy
Head of Thalia
The source of creativity has been a mystery since earliest times. The ancients attributed the miracle of inspiration to a divine source, namely the nine muses (daughters of Zeus, the god of thunder and lightening, and Mnemosyne, the goddess of memory), who presided over song and the different types of poetry, as well as the arts and sciences. This head of Thalia, the muse of comedy and pastoral poetry, is a reproduction of a 2nd-century Roman original that resembles Greek models of the late 4th to early 3rd century B.C.—indicating Roman dependence on Greek originals. Produced in cooperation with the Vatican Museums.

Made in cast marble, hand painted, and measures 15.25" H.

Diana of Ephesus
Diana was the daughter of Jupiter, the Chief God and the twin sister of Apollo. Her mother, Latona, was one of Jupiter's paramours. When Diana was born her mother bore her painlessly, and then Diana helped her mother deliver Apollo, thus making Diana the Patroness of Childbirth. As a child Jupiter asked Diana what she like to have as gifts. She replied that she wanted eternal virginity (in the sense of always being true to her own nature), as many names as Apollo, a bow and arrow like Apollo's, the office of bringing light (providing guidance to others), a saffron tunic with a red hem, and nine nymphs as her maidens. Here, Diana is shown adorned with meticulus decoration. She is made from compound stone, weighs 1.4 lbs., and measures 11.5”H x 3.75”W. D-090S1-143

Fortuna (Tyche) Roman Goddess of Luck Statue
Fortuna (Tyche) Roman Goddess of Luck Statue
The Roman goddess Fortuna (Greek goddess Tyche) is the goddess of luck -- hopefully of good luck. She stands holding a large cornucopia from which spills forth an abundance of coins. We hope the coins represent good fortune for us. But her blindfolded eyes suggest that luck is capricious and ever changing. Modern depictions of the Blind Justice Lady embraced by lawyers and judges borrow this symbolism.

Our statue reproduction is made from bonded bronze, with a light bluish grey patina on her blindfold and dress, excellent details, 11.25"H x 4"W x 3.75"D.

Aphrodite Kallipygos Raising Peplos Greek Statue
Aphrodite Kallipygos Raising Peplos Greek Statue
Aphrodite Kallipygos Raising Peplos is type of nude female statue from the Hellenistic era which translates as "Aphrodite of the Beautiful Buttocks" (also known as Callipygian Venus or Venus Kallipygos). It depicts a woman raising her peplos to reveal her hips and buttocks. As she makes this gesture, she turns and looks over her shoulder to take a look. The Goddess of Love invites the viewer in to gaze at her and thus invokes her powers of attraction and desire. As part of the Hellenistic era, it is a further example of how inventive the sculptors were at using gesture to add naturalism to their subjects. Made from bonded stone, measures 15.5"H x 5"L x 4"W G-040SM1-172

Danaid Standing
According to Greek mythology, the Danaides were the fifty daughters of King Danaos of Argos, who was in conflict with his brother Aegyptos, father of fifty sons. The fifty sons went to Argos to propose marriage to the Danaides as a conciliatory gesture towards Danaos. Danaos resented his brother and ordered his daughters to murder their bridegrooms on their wedding night. They proceeded, except all but one. As a result of their crimes, the Danaides were sentenced to the underworld where their unending penance was to fill pierced jugs with water. Made from white Carrara bonded marble, imported from Italy, on a black base.
