Cast from the Statue of Minerva Polias, (commonly called the Giustiniani Minerva.) "The most famous and beautiful of all of the statues of Pallas which have come down to us, is that one,--so admirably preserved in its essentials--which formerly graced the Giustiniani collection, and now has a prominent place among the glories of the Braccio Nuovo, in the Vatican. . . . What sentiments and feelings are well-pleasing in her, a glance at this image--so earnest, so exalted, and yet so gracious--teaches."--"Kunst-Mythologie," von Dr. Emil. Braun. [P. 5; excerpted from a detailed description of the work.]
