Museo di Torino

Museum of Antiquities in Turin

This museum keeps further interesting sculptures, such as a small head of Zeus, of high stylistic level (Flavian period), a statuette of Pan in the late-Hellenistic tradition, dated to the second half of the second century AD, and a statuette of a deity (likely Serapis), inspired to workshops connected to the great sculptors of the late fourth century BC, such as Lysippus; this statuette features a Baroque style and is dated as well to the second half of the second century AD. Moreover the collections from Libarna include some fine small bronzes (statuettes of Minerva and Victory) and amber objects, in Antiquity thought to retain magic and therapeutic powers. WEB
