Timeless are pleased to offer a rare bronze mount of the ROMAN GODDESS, MINERVA.
Not only was Minerva the Roman goddess of wisdom and strategic warfare, and the sponsor of arts, trade, and strategy, she was also the virgin goddess of music, poetry, medicine, wisdom, commerce, weaving, and the crafts! She certainly had her hands full.
Minerva was probably adopted from the Etruscan pantheon (the people of Etruria lived in North Italy and, in many ways, can be thought of as being early Rome's predecessors and mentors), and became one of the most important goddesses in Roman mythology.
At around 2.5cm, this would make a very interesting addition to an antiquities collection.
Now available in the Timeless Galleries
