Title: Marble portrait of Livia
Post by: Dominic T on December 01, 2018, 06:29:58 am
A rare and wonderful marble portrait of the 'first empress of Rome' has been sold a month ago at Christie's Auction. I' m so disappointed because I have been outbid at ( hoping that the moderater will make an exception!) 200000 US $.....  It would have been so nice in my living room…

This would have embarrassed my living room; in fact my entire house.  Lovely item though.
