An antique cast-iron statue of the Greek goddess, Atalanta, on an associated cast-iron column. This figure is after the antique marble statue of Atalanta now in the Louvre Museum, Paris, and depicts the fleet-footed huntress in mid stride. The legend was that she outran all of her potential suitors until Hippomenes distracted her during a race by scattering golden apples on the ground.
The statue has a maker's label reading 'Barbezat & Cie, Val d'Osne', who were one of the most successful foundries in France during the mid 19th century producing a wide range of goods including garden statuary. The statue is standing on a modern cast iron column which compliments it in style and scale and is included in the price.
