Maria Paulin Borghese (1780-1825) as "Venus Victorious" Bonded Marble Statue
by Antonio Canova (1757-1822) in the Galleria Borghese, Rome

When Paulin's brother Napoleon was immortalized by the famous Italian sculptor Canova, Paulin was not to be outdone. She was portrayed as a reclining Venus, but with one provision: the statue was extremely idealized to preclude gossiping about her figure. A Basil Street Gallery exclusive, complete with details including the painstakingly rendered garment folds, this more-than-foot-long masterpiece is cast in fine-quality bonded marble resin for proud display in home or gallery.
