CAPITOLINE WOLF - STATUE - MARBLE
In the ancient Rome, the appearance of a wolf before a battle was a good luck symbol, since this animal was considered sacred to the god of war Mars. However other stories, myths and legends represent this animal as something to fear, or something dangerous to deal with. The wolf worked by our craftsmen recalls the myth of Romulus and Remus, abandoned on the shore of the river and raised by a she-wolf. This very beloved symbol in Rome is to be found in the Capitoline museums and various emblems and squares. For the Christian culture, this animal was a symbol of ferocity and greed, evil that threatens the flock, that is to say the believers. A stunning representation that highlights the excellent talent of our craftsmen. Handcrafted production that, through the experience of its artists, gives splendor and importance to these works exclusively on this website or in our stores.
