Perhaps the greatest and most celebrated sculptor of his generation, Antonio Canova is still revered for his polished, sensual style and intrinsic understanding of ancient Roman sculpture. The Three Graces expresses his Neoclassical appreciation for the beauty and grace of the female form while reinterpreting the mythology of the ancient fable. The sister goddesses, daughters of Zeus and attendants to Venus, are captured in one of history's most celebrated interpretations of feminine nature. Aglaia ("splendor"); Eurphrosyne ("joy") and Thalia ("abundance"); remind us that balance and joy are indeed a result of grace. Perfect addition for your home or garden gallery, our Design Toscano sculpture is mesmerizingly detailed from draped fabric to beautiful faces. Cast in quality fiberglass reinforced designer resin, for year-round display in home, garden or restaurant, this Neoclassical masterpiece boasts an exquisite, faux French limestone finish. Large: 29½"Wx16"Dx58"H. 115 lbs.
In this magnificent, hand-finished heavy bronze casting, Themis, the Goddess of Justice, holds balanced scales which represent the weighing of evidence and a sword that represents punishment; her eyes blindfolded, representing her impartiality. Themis which translates to "divine law" transcends the snakes of injustice at her feet. The ancient Greek Titaness is expertly finished with a hand-applied two-tone multidimensional sepia tone accentuated by a color-washed emerald verde patina and finished with a black marble museum mount base. The Greek goddess is individually cast in the traditional lost wax method, which highlights her expressive face and classical, positioned limbs and guarantees lasting beauty. Our bronze statue of Themis, Goddess of Justice, makes a unmistakable impression of experience (and success) when positioned in clear view in the lobby or reception area of an established law firm and strongly asserts the sagacity and professionalism of any lawyer! 13"Wx11"Dx33½"H. 43 lbs.

Cast in quality designer resin, our almost yard-tall sculpt is expertly accented by an antique stone finish. 22"Wx14"Dx33"H. 35 lbs.
