cast, pediment, statue

Details

  • Catalogue text

    Most of the statues were excavated by C. Haller von Hallerstein and C.R. Cockerell in 1811 and subsequently sold to Prince Ludwig of Bavaria.

    Under-life-size statues from the pediments of the temple of Aphaia at Aigina, Greece. Around the time of completion of a first set of pedimental statues (A 40-41), a second set was made (A 28-37, 163) to replace the first, which then seems to have been exhibited on ground level in the neighbourhood of the temple in the sanctuary of Aphaia.

    Statue of helmeted Athena (W.I) wearing long chiton, mantle and aegis.

    From second west pediment.

    Modern: the tip of the nose and some details of clothes and crest. The alien left arm and the modern right hand have been removed from the cast.
