Galleria Romanelli

Laocoonte Mask

$2,920

DESCRIPTION

This superb decorative piece rests on a metal pedestal and reproduces in bronze a detail of the marble sculptural group entitled Laocoon and His Sons, displayed at the Vatican Museums in Rome. This piece is shaped as a mask and portraits the face of the main character, a Trojan high priest, as two sea serpents, sent by Poseidon, emerge from the waters to kill him and his two sons as a punishment for having warned his people of the trick of the Trojan horse. Exquisite details and a superb rendition of the expressions of sufferance on this face create a magnificent effect.
