Antique French Hand Carved Wood Wall Panel Woman and a Peacock Crown Juno Hera Goddess
Juno and Peacock Carved Wood Panel

Juno and Peacock Carved Wood Panel

Regular price €370

A beautiful antique French hand carved wood wall panel dating to the late 19th century. The sculpture depicts a crowned woman near a peacock. I guess that it features the Roman goddess Juno, "wife of Jupiter and the mother of Mars, Vulcan, Bellona and Juventas. She is the Roman equivalent of Hera, queen of the gods in Greek mythology. Like Hera, her sacred animal was the peacock." There have been many representations of Juno next to a peacock in the history of art. And this panel is one of them.

Good antique condition with some normal signs of ages and a warm patina.
