Seller: artancientltd (9,497) 99.2%, Location: London, Ships to: Americas, Europe, Asia, AU, Item: 291938922885 An ancient Roman marble standing figure of an eagle, dating to the 2nd – 4th century AD, eastern Roman Empire. A powerful sculpture, standing with its wings folded back. With oversized talons, sturdy body and large cape-like wings. The back is flattened, suggesting it was originally sheltered by a niche. The eagle was revered in the ancient Roman world as a symbol of both immortality and power. This example appears to have been refashioned in later antiquity as an Altar, the head broken and a smooth depression formed. A rare, large example of ancient Roman sculpture. Height: 15 ¾ inches. Condition: Good, fragmentary as shown. Unrestored. Interestingly, the break at the head appears intentionally excavated in ancient times, perhaps suggesting its reuse as an altar. Provenance: European private collection, acquired before 2001. Subsequently in the private collection of a British dealer. Purchased from the above by ArtAncient in September 2014.
