This Beautiful stone Statue of Diane de Gabies represents the Virgin Goddess of the hunt and nature. The life-size Statue is shown fastening her heavily draped gown at the neck.
The Original Statue stands in the Louvre, Paris.
This statue was excavated by Gavin Hamilton in 1792 on Prince Borghese’s property at Gabii outside Rome and was displayed (with other sculptures found there) in the gardener’s house (now the Casino dell’Orologio) in the grounds of the Villa Borghese which had been radically transformed by Nicola Fagioli the year before.
