Ceramic statuette of the goddess Juno.
Height: 21 cm.
Ceramic with a slight patina.
The Roman goddess Juno, Hera to the ancient Greeks, was venerated by the Romans as the the patron goddess of marriages and births. She was the wife of Jupiter, the greatest of the Roman gods and patron of the capital of the empire, Rome. Juno gave her name to the month of June, which was the most favourable month for marriages. This goddess is the special protector of women – an ideal gift for weddings, couples, or newborns to whom she wishes to bestow her protection.
This decorative figure of the goddess Juno from the 2nd century AD is made from a piece found in 1878 in Leudersdorf, Daun district, in a rustic Roman villa. The original piece is now in the Rheinischen Landesmuseum in Trier (Trier).
