Corinna Statue, after the antique marble statue by William Brodie.
A stunning reproduction marble sculpture of Corinna the lyric muse.
The antique marble sculpture was made by the renowned William Brodie, a Scottish sculptor (1815-1881).
After gaining a scholarship he went to Rome to study under Laurence MacDonald who oversaw the creation of his Corinna marble statue. Brodie made many public marble & Bronze statues and monuments, including a marble bust of queen Victoria for Balmoral.
Corinna was a poet and song writer, and considered today by scholars as the greatest of lyricists.
She was from Greece and flourished in the 5th century B.C, at the same time as another great writer from history, Pindar, whom Corrina beat five times in Greek poetical contests.Pausanius in his writings wrote of her to be the most beautiful women of her age.
