Ariadne riding her Panther symbolizes Beauty taming Cruelty. Danneccker sculpted this masterpiece in marble in 1814, kept at the Frankfurt Museum
The worldwide success of this statue and the grace of the theme of Beauty taming the wild Beast have glorifies the sculptor and gives rise to numerous reproductions in marble, bronze or biscuit.
Our rather large statue stands out for the luminous whiteness of its alabaster and the harmony of its proportions.
Little restauration at the tail
