February is upon us… So it is time to start planning your Valentine’s Day and perhaps an antique may be a thoughtful gift for a loved one this year. In the collection here at the gallery on The Pimlico Road we have a pair of beautiful bronze statuette depicting Aphrodite and Apollo: The most beautiful Goddess and the most handsome God of all. Elegant, refined these statues add grace and romance to an interior.
Prolific online poet Anthony Shacknofsky writes:
Aphrodite, Goddess of love,
Peering down from up above,
Hearken to my earnest plea,
Romantic love I seek from Thee !
One whose heart is pure and true,
Divine perfection, as are you.
In my dreams I see her there,
The smile, the cheeks, the golden hair,
Eyes like diamonds, beyond compare
They are from our own stock, A fine 19th century pair of bronze figures from France depicting Apollo and Aphrodite, both stamped F. BARBEDIENNE. FONDEUR. For further information see our site. A perfect gift for a loved one this Valentine’s Day?
