Roman Terracotta Mother and Child Figure

Lot 0016B Details

Description
Rome, ca. 200 to 100 BCE. This is a terracotta hollow figure that would have been used as a mold for lost wax casting. The front of the figure is carved into a simple form of a woman holding her child; she touches one breast to emphasize her fertility. She has a small waist and large hips and wears a large headdress, long, curling hair, and a draped garment. This item would have been used as a mold to create statues whose details would then be made more fine in the final casting process. An interesting object imbued with beauty! Size: 4" W x 11.5" H (10.2 cm x 29.2 cm)

Provenance: ex-Richard Wagner Coll. 1979

All items legal to buy/sell under U.S. Statute covering cultural patrimony Code 2600, CHAPTER 14, and are guaranteed to be as described or your money back.

A Certificate of Authenticity will accompany all winning bids.
