Greek Sculpture: Thalia – Muse of Comedy

Regular price $ 425.00 $ 0.00
A gift of art that harks back to Greece’s Classical Age which is usually written of as extending the century-and-a-half between the defeat of the Persians in 479 BCE and the rise of Alexander the Great in 336 BCE. This is a fine example of Greek sculpture before the Hellenistic period.

Thalia (not to be confused with the Grace of the same name) was the eighth of the Nine Muses and daughter of Zeus and Mnemosyne. Her purview was comedy and poetry. Her name means verdant and flourishing. She is the giver of joy. This piece is a reproduction of a second-century Roman original that resembles the Greek models of the Classical Age.

Produced in cooperation with the Vatican Museums. Hand patinated cast marble.
