Terra-cotta group depicting Diana and Endymion. France. 2nd half 18th C.

A beautiful and very refined Neoclassical terra-cotta group depicting the story of Diana and Endymion.

Endymion was a beautiful youth who fed his flock on Mount Latmos. One calm, clear night Diana, the moon, looked down and saw him sleeping. The cold heart of the virgin goddess was warmed by his surpassing beauty, and she came down to him, kissed him, and watched over him while he slept.
(from: Thomas Bulfinch (1796–1867). Age of Fable: Vols. I & II: Stories of Gods and Heroes)

France. 2nd half of the 18th century.

Dimensions: height 41cm ; width 27,5cm ; depth 14,5cm
