Rape of the Sabine Women Statue, Roman Republic Legend by Da Bologna 15H -
Rape of the Sabines. The drama in art is captured for all time. Giovanni da Bologna (1524-1608) demonstrates his interest in classical antiquity by sculpting an event from early Roman history in which the Romans rape the women from the neighboring Sabine community. Adding 16th-century flair, Da Bologna portrays the figures with a new dynamism by spiraling them around a central axis and counterbalancing the woman outstretched with the men who pull her back.
Now in the Loggia dei Lanzi, Florence, this reproduction is made from bonded marble, black marble base, 15 in H x 5 in W x 5 in D. Note: Product may vary from photo.
