19th century Figurehead of the goddess Minerva

Dramatically beautiful figurehead of the goddess Minerva. Minerva is a personification of the divine power of the mind, of the resourcefulness, of the human mind and of wisdom. Later she is gained by the Romans as a warrior and a peace-loving goddess.
With very fine crafmanship carved and decorated. Original paint and surface. The right arm is missing, but this does not detract from the appearance.
