Ariadne of Crete

Regular price $ 650.00 USD
Regular price Sale price $ 650.00 USD

A handcrafted resin bust of Ariadne, based on an original piece in a British Museum collection.

Princess Ariadne of Greek mythology, daughter of King Minos, is best known for helping Theseus to defeat the Minotaur and escape the labyrinth beneath the palace of Knossos in Crete. After being abandoned by Theseus on the island of Naxos, Ariadne was rescued and wedded by the god Dionysus, who made her immortal.

This replica captures Ariadne either in her contemplative moments on the shores of Naxos or as the immortal consort of Dionysus, as often portrayed by poets and artists in ancient Greece and Rome.

An intriguing gift inspired by classical art and mythology.
