17th Century Italian Mythological Embossed Copper Bas-Relief


Rare pair of copper plaques repulsed mythological subject, Italian work of the 17th century. They represent, respectively:
“Terra”, the allegory of the Earth, in the guise of the goddess Cybele, “Magna Mater” or Goddess Mother, wearing a wall crown (a crown with towers symbolizing the walls of a fortified city), a scepter by hand;
“Ignis”, the allegory of Fire, in the features of Jupiter riding an eagle.
Both plates are finely repoussé, in very good state of conservation and with a beautiful patina. I must emphasize that the photos give a distorted idea but the plates are perfectly straight. In golden frame late 18th.
