Tyche, Fortuna, the goddess of fortune, greek alabaster statue with color

Handmande greek alabaster statue of Tyche with color and golden details, the goddess of fortune, chance, providence, and fate

Handmade greek alabaster statue of Tyche with color and golden details, the goddess of fortune, prosperity and fate. A unique souvenir from Greece!

In Greek Mythology Tyche was the presiding tutelary deity who governed the fortune and prosperity of a city, its destiny. She was the daughter of Aphrodite and Zeus or Hermes and she was often perceived as the cause of many unexplained events such as floods, droughts, frosts, or even in politics.

The deity appears on many coins of the Hellenistic period in the three centuries before the Christian era, especially from cities in the Aegean.

In Greco-Roman art Tyche was portrayed wearing a mural crown, and carrying a cornucopia (horn of plenty), an emblematic gubernaculum (ship's rudder), and the wheel of fortune. 

In ancient Greece many of the statues and architectural sculpture were colourfully painted in a way that is described as ''polychrome'' (deriving from the Greek words many and colour)? However, due to intensive weathering and other effects on the stone, the ''polychromy'' on Ancient Greek sculpture and architecture has substantially or totally faded, leading the scientists for centuries to believe that the statues were originally totally white.

***Please notice that any differences of colour, form and painting between the images and the products received are due to the fact that the items are 100% handmade. ***
