Questions about this piece?


Depicting a life-size female figure, this exceptional work of art depicts Spring, the goddess and personification of the season, as a solitary standing figure, stepping forward, and clutching a host of flowers in the folds of her beautifully carved drapery.

It was made by the excellent nineteenth century Florentine artist and sculptor Antonio Frilli, founder of the Frilli Gallery in 1860, a sculptor renowned for his wonderful recreations of Classical and Renaissance works in marble and alabaster intended to decorate the beautiful homes and residencies of Europe and the wider world. 

The Frilli Gallery is perhaps best known as the makers of the replicas of the Doors of Paradise by Lorenzo Ghiberti that currently are on display in the Baptistery in Florence. This particular work, from the hand of Antonio Frilli himself, depicts the goddess of Spring, with clear inspiration taken from Botticelli's Primavera. Not a direct copy, of course, more of a three-dimensional interpretation of that iconic figure, this exceptional sculpture is a superb depiction of the goddess' graceful manner, beautiful figure, and generous liberality. As an interior design piece or decoration, it represents the best of Frilli and his gallery's work.
