Caesar Augustus of Prima Porta Bonded Marble Statue
GREAT BUY for a 2000th ANNIVERSARY
Another great purchasing experience from Design Toscano! As usual, the statue looks better in person than in photographs; particularly with this one, I thought the face was inaccurate in the photographs but in person the statue is very accurate to the original. Having said that, I do like the way photographs are taken and displayed on this website. Design Toscano is quite unique in selling such meaningful high-quality replicas of art like this. It is appropriate to purchase this iconic statue of Emperor Caesar Augustus on the 2000th anniversary of his death. This individual is a keystone of constitutional order; Rule of Law; public works, civil infrastructure, & civic service; tolerance but defense of state identity; generosity but individual responsibility; publicly accessible art & literature; timeless naturally sustainable social values & reason in nature; and, all wrapped into one, Augustus is simply a keystone of Western Civilization. Too many children in grade school across North America over the past 40+ years have been conspiratorially & deliberately uneducated about our ancient culture, Classical Antiquity. Regular quality history & civics education needs to be reconstituted into our grade school curricula… One cannot expect a well-informed citizenry if they generally know nothing of the origins & development of representative government and democracy while being ignorant of civics (how their nation is operated & its founding principles). …A proper history/civics curriculum will also yield more sales for Design Toscano! ;)

A piece of history.
Being a student of ancient history, I couldn't pass up this statue of Augustus Caesar. It's well-made with bonded marble and is highly detailed. It looks just like the picture. I am very pleased.

Excellent Desk Statue
This Augustus statue is perfect for commanding the area around all my history books. The material is durable and resembles marble fairly well.

Great price nice statue!
Got lots of these and they are all very nice. This one does not have super high levels of detail like some of them but its still a very nice little statue and being half Italian like that can get some Roman stuff not only Greek stuff.

I am very pleased with this reproduction of a great work of art. I have always been mesmerized by the detailing and flowing lines. This looks just like a photo I saw. Thanks, Toscano!
