Apollo & Daphne Bonded Marble Statue
By Gian Lorenzo Bernini (1598-1680), 1622, Galleria Borghese, Rome
The tale of Apollo and Daphne is as complex as the artistic skill needed to capture the refined sense of movement and form found in this dramatic sculpt. Cast in bonded natural marble, our museum-quality replica portrays love-struck Apollo's relentless pursuit of the unwilling Daphne, each having been struck by one of vengeful Eros' enchanted arrows, moments before the gods answered the maiden's desperate cry for help by turning her into a laurel tree. Conveying the same sense of pride, spite and unrequited love as Bernini's original, this work is a stunning addition to any serious collection!

Rated 5 out of 5 by like the original My wife and I saw the original Apollo & Daphne several years ago at the Borghese Gallery in Rome, and were amazed at the amount of detail that someone ( Bernini ) could carve out of marble. Your replica captured that detail !!! Quite a stunning piece December 30, 2013
