This sculpture is an adaptation of the statue of Adonis by the neoclassical Danish sculptor Bertel Thorvaldsen. The original is located in the Thorvaldsen Museum in Copenhagen.
In Greek mythology, Adonis was the son of an incestuous relationship between Princess Myrrha and her father, King Cinyras. Myrrha enclosed her newborn son in the trunk of a tree, where he was found by the goddess Aphrodite. Adonis grew into a handsome young man, and Aphrodite fell in love with him. After his tragic death in a hunting accident, Aphrodite contested his return with Persephone, the queen of the underworld, until they agreed that Adonis would spend half the year with Aphrodite in the world of the living and the other half in Hades.
The interior decoration of our home takes on a unique personality and expression when we incorporate reproductions that express the beauty of art. Whether copies of masterpieces from antiquity or statues from recent centuries, such as this Adonis sculpture, we add a touch of originality and exoticism to the favorite corners of our home. In the living room, these figures can become central pieces that draw attention and stimulate conversation, while in the library or office, they create a relaxing and inspiring atmosphere.
