(described by Ovide in his methamorphoses)
Ivory
H. 18.8cm; W. 6.6cm; D. 2.2cm
The rasp is decorated with Hercules knocking down a bull, the club resting on a ground of rock and foliage. The upper register offers an architectural decoration flanked by curtains on either side, with a shell in its centre.
The lower register is carved with a grotesque figure with sharp teeth and a shell for a goat.
On the reverse side, the lid of the storeroom is present (old restoration) and decorated with a bunch of flowers in its centre.
Three labels testify to the journey of our copy.
The grater is in a very good state of preservation, no break or crack.
