Bust of Antinous
Lover of Roman Emperor Hadrian


Antinoüs or Antinoös (Greek: Ἀντίνοος) (born ca. AD 110 or AD 111, died AD 130), was the lover of the Roman Emperor Hadrian, who deified him after his death. Antinous was born to a Greek family in Bithynion-Claudiopolis, in the Roman province of Bithynia in what is now north-west Turkey. One version is that Antinous joined the entourage of the Emperor when Hadrian passed through Bithynia in about 124, and soon became his lover who accompanied him on his many journeys through the empire. Another version has it that Hadrian had the empire searched for the most beautiful youth, and chose Antinous.  In October 130, according to Hadrian, "Antinous was drowned in the Nilus.” It is not known whether his death was the result of accident, suicide, murder, or religious sacrifice.  At Antinous's death the emperor decreed his deification, and the 2nd century Christian writer Tatian mentions a belief that his likeness was placed over the face of the Moon, though this may be exaggerated due to his anti-pagan polemical style

Item No. F012

Dimensions: 14" x 13" x 26" (36cm x 33cm x 66cm)


Finish as shown: antique stone.

 

Made after museum original from strong high resistant Fiberstone/ Fiberglass and coated with stain finish.

Fiberstone is a mixture of sand and stones cast into the surface using terrazzo-like techniques. The surface is then sandblasted and chemically treated, and then hand painted with an antique acid stain to give the appearance of aged stone.  Since it is reinforced with a fiberglass backing, it remains less fragile and lighter alternative to concrete and cast stone.  By mastering the art of casting our products in fiberglass we manage to retain all the detail or the original with the added benefits of less weight, greater strength, and product suitability for both indoor and outdoor use. 

 

The advantages of fiberstone and fiberglass when compared to concrete, cast stone, and cement are that they are about half the weight, are far less fragile, and much more resistant.  This sculpture can be displayed both indoor and outdoor year round.
