ALABASTER STATUE AND MARBLE REPRESENTING HELEN AND PARIS
Statue in alabaster and Marble representing an embracing couple, probably Helen and Paris. In order to create a contrast, the bodies of the figures are made of alabaster and the clothes of Marble. The male figure, Paris, wears a short chiton (tunic) and his curly hair is covered with a headband. He holds Helen, wearing a long peplum, in his arms and clasps her hand to his heart. The theme has been repeated often since the 19th century, when ancient influences were regularly revived.
