Kostas G , we all love to help if we know.

Just one statue at the time ( one per thread )

Let us take care of the first statue , I would like photos of the sides.

Thank you.

***Added  ; Here we do not talk about financial values , only historic values.

I made a new thread for you for the other statue.
Good day.

I do not think it is ancient. The style is very different from all the other ancient pieces I recall.

Hi folks,

     Just wondering... is it supposed to be/represent Artemis of Ephesus with variation of mural crown and bull's testicles around her neck? A Victorian copy of a lost original?
