Clytie, a bust, after Ridgway, English, 1857.

Clytie was a water nymph, and in love with the sun god, Apollo, but when he abandoned her she sat broken hearted, and did nothing but stare at the sun, from rise till fall, until her limbs took root and she turned into a Sunflower, and according to Greek mythology this is the origin of Sunflowers today.

34 cm tall.

Beautiful tragic figure

This is the fourth purchase from this maker and another quality piece. Like all of the others the attention to detail is just spot on making this a really beautiful rendering of the tragic Clytie. I am so impressed with this supplier and the beautiful work that they produce I will be buying at least another piece from them. Trouble will be finding places to display them
