Running Artemis

late 2nd Century BC - 1st Century AD

Marble

Greece or Italy

Artemis, goddess of the hunt, is identifiable here by the quiver strap across her chest. The way the dress clings to the body (often called “wet drapery”) while simultaneously billowing around the figure creates an exaggerated sense of movement that is a signature element of Hellenistic sculpture. Known for her chastity and modesty, Artemis cannot escape the dictates of the style and its body-conscious modelling.

Mirror Box with Head of Athena

early 4th Century BC

Greece

These case or box mirrors, constructed just like modern, hinged ladies’ compacts, were very fashionable from the later 5th century into the 4th century. The decoration of the cover was always in repoussé. Frequently there was another disk within this cover with an incised decoration of a mythological figure. The actual mirror is the highly polished top of the bottom half of the box. A loop at the hinge allowed the mirror to be suspended as a wall decoration when not in active use.

Statuette of Enthroned Figure

Bronze with Silver inlay

Roman

1st Century AD

This statuette is thought to depict Concordia, the Roman personification of harmony, one of the four principal virtues of the Roman Empire. Concordia sits on a high-backed throne and wears an ornamental headband, a long tunic tied above her waist, and a cloak, which drapes over her left shoulder and lap. The figure likely held a libation dish in her extended right hand and a cornucopia (horn of plenty) in her missing left hand.
