From the renaissance onward there was a revived interest in the classical gods. People recognized what the ancients had always known: that the gods were metaphors for real human emotions and experiences. This exquisite cameo carved in the antique style is as lovely as anything produced in the classical world. In its elegant golden setting it is truly an “objet de vertu,” an object worth possessing.
