NYMPH WITH SCORPION
LORENZO BARTOLINI


Nymph with Scorption tells the story of a sitting nymph whose foot has just been stung by a scorpion.
A sculpture in momentum, as the viewer can see this precise moment just after stinging.
Her gaze, her position, the way she seems to be about to pinch her lips in pain, the ways she's frowning, the scorpion nearby - are all clues to her story.


HERMAPHRODITE

As the name suggest, Hermaphrodite was born from the love of Aphrodite, goddess of Love, and Hermes, messenger of the gods and inherited the beauty of their parents.

One day, while he bathes in the lake of Carie, a naiad Salmacis, falls madly in love with him. As he rejected her advances, Salmacis embraces him by force and begs Zeus to unite her to him forever. Her wish is granted and they become one bisexual being. Through the fusion of their bodies, they reach absolute beauty.

In this representation of Hermaphrodite asleep, naked, barely covered by a sheet. Created between 150 and 140 B.C., lying on a marble bed and pillow, which Lorenzo Bernini added to the work in 1620 commissioned by its owner Cardinal Borghese.


NYMPH ECHO
PAUL LEMOYNE


A figure from Greed mythology, the Nymph Echo is sculpted here in the dying throes of despair after being rejected by Narcissus, with whom she had fallen in love. She was trasnformed into a rock.

"In those days, Echo had a body" wrote the Roman poet Ovid in his Metamorphoses... Paul Lemoyne chose to capture her in marble: the reclining nymph appears tense in silent expectation, making a vulnerable movement with her half-open left hand.

The catalog for the 1822 Paris Salon, where the work was first exhibited, explains this uncomfortable posture, the statue of the nymph faces a statue of Narcissus, who ignores her, fascinated by his own reflection in the water.


DIANA OF GABIES,
GODDESS OF THE MOON OR THE HUNT

Like her Greek counterpart, Artemis, Diana is the daughter of the Roman God Jupiter and his mistress Latona. Diane, associated with the moon was born on the island of Delos with her twin brother, Apollo, the sun God.
Discovered in the 1972 in the ancient town of Gabies near Rome, the Diana of Gabies dates back to the 4th century BC. The sculpture's short tunic and sandals allow us to identity the piece as Diana or Artemis, goddess of the hund and she ties her cloak over her right shoulder in a rare depiction of such a gesture. Diana was also revered as the goddess of wild nature, the subject of a thousand myths, as the story of her power over the elements of the natural world provided a constant sourcve of new artistic interpretation
