Description
Military Trophy - 72 cm - Neoclassical - Marble - Late 19th century
Italy

The sculpture is meant to represent what in ancient times was called a military trophy. This was what the barbarian peoples demanded from the defeated Romans, very often the opposite. Attached to the photos we show an original military trophy from the first century AD, exhibited at the museum of Centrale Montemartini in Rome. The sculpture is in good condition, in its original period patina, with signs of time and various small fragments missing. However, what you can see is completely intact and solid. All mounted on a more modern base by means of a metal rod. It too is part of our remarkable collection.
