The monumental woman's head from the 1st century BC found in Rome Chr. Probably represents the mother of the gods Juno (Greek Hera), recognizable by her mature features and the diadem adorned with young (grain) plants. In 1622 Cardinal Ludovico Ludovisi bought the sculpture and had it mounted on a baroque pedestal. After him she is called Juno Ludovisi, today she is in the Museo Nazionale in Rome.
Goethe was enthusiastic when, on his Italian trip to Rome, he discovered a plaster cast of the sculpture and was able to acquire it:
Juno Ludovisi claimed first place with us, the more highly esteemed and revered, when one only seldom saw the original, and one had to be lucky to keep an eye on it; for none of our contemporaries, who comes before them for the first time, may claim to be equal to this sight. "(Johann Wolfgang von Goethe: Italian Journey)
However, the Roman replica could not take Goethe back to Weimar. It was not until 1823 that he received a new plaster cast, which he set up in the "Junozimmer" in his home in Weimar. This replica can still be seen at this place today.
Marble cast, made by hand in Berlin.
Height: about 12 cm, in a paperboard with enclosed explanation.
Exclusively in the museum shop Weimar.
Art. No. 4067
