Fortuna-Tyche

Ca. 200. Marble. Room 069

During the reign of Christina of Sweden (1626-1689), who owned this work, this sculpture was completed with a new head and roses and turned into a Flora. In fact it originally depicted Fortuna, goddess of fate, who holds a cornucopia as a sign of abundance and leans on a small figure of Tyche, another Greek representation of the same divinity. The stiff execution of the present version makes its Hellenistic model (150-100 BC) barely discernible.
