  The Rape Of Proserpine By Bernini Replica
The Rape Of Proserpine By Bernini Sculpture Replica
The Rape Of Proserpine By Bernini Replica


The Rape Of Proserpine By Bernini a reproduction Statue. Pluto and Proserpina by Gian Lorenzo Bernini, shows Pluto, powerful god of the underworld, abducting Proserpina, daughter of Ceres. In this group Bernini develops the twisting pose reminiscent of Mannerism, combined with an impression of vital energy (in pushing against Pluto's face Proserpina's hand creases his skin and his fingers sink into the flesh of his victim). Seen from the left, the group shows Pluto taking a fast and powerful stride and grasping Proserpina, from the front he appears triumphantly bearing his trophy in his arms; from the right one sees Proserpina's tears as she prays to heaven, the wind blowing her hair, as the guardian of Hades, the three-headed dog, barks. Various moments of the story are thus summed up in a single sculpture. Showcasing sculptural artistry with elegant movement from smooth skin to textured tresses, this museum gallery-quality replica is worthy of any new or established art collection. This sculpture is a wonderful gift for any sculpture art lover.
