This elegant woman was once a votive gift to the gods of pagan Rome. We can imagine that the person who placed this offering at some ancient shrine was a woman not unlike the sculpted one. What did she wish for so long ago? Health, good fortune and happiness? What person today--even after the passage of centuries--could wish for anything different from life? - (P.0213)
