Putti Children Bronze Statue in Pair
Putti Children Bronze Statue in Pair, reproduction after originals found in Pompeii at the House of the Vettii. Pompeii was thriving up until the moment of its destruction and in studying its life interrupted. The decorative schema of the House of the Vettii provides important evidence for trends in domestic decoration in the final years of Pompeii’s occupation.
The atrium is richly decorated, as are the rooms opening onto the peristyle. Two of these were in the course of being painted at the time of destruction, while the other three are richly appointed with Fourth Style wall painting. The largest of these, a dining room, is decorated in panels of red and black with an exceptionally fine motif of erotes or putti engaged in various occupations.
Please note there can be slight differences between the color of the item you receive and the pictures on the website due to the handmade nature of the product. The important thing to note is that the patina is not a paint but a very thin conversion coat on the surface of the bronze.
