This beautiful mid-20th century bronze sculpture represents a young blindfolded woman, known as the Blindfolded Fortune Goddess. This one is called the Blind Fortune Lady of Sorrento, because just like the Blind Lady of Sorrento she has a beautiful bow around her neck.
Length from shoulder to shoulder: 13 cm.
Bronze sculpture height (marble base excluded): 25 cm.
Depth from nose to back of the head: 18 cm.
The Blindfolded Goddess was a Greek tutelary deity, the goddess of prosperity and destiny. The goddess was depicted as a naked and blindfolded woman, holding an upside down cornucopia, a symbol of abundance, and randomly spreading its content around. The Romans welcomed the goddess and considered her as the one bringing fertility and fortune.
The dimensions include the marble pedestal.
As you can see in the last picture, the ribbon is missing a tiny piece, while the work shows some small signs of ageing, stains and small scratches, chipping on the marble base and a small loss of patina to the chin.
