Antique miniature painting French Baroque style hand painted enamel on copper plaque. This ravishing beauty is named by the Roman's as "MINERVA" or by the Greek's as "ATHENA" the Goddess of War & Wisdom. She is the daughter of Zeus & his 1st wife Metis, born under very unusual circumstances according to mythology? She is exquisitely portrayed here in her regal attire and wears a large plumed helmet with the Head of Medusa on her breastplate.

A spear is in her left hand with her elbow resting on a column beside her. In the background you can see the skyline of Rome and its many buildings and statues. The painting is truly a work of art, just exquisite with all the detailing. Placed in a magnificent Bronze Dore frame.

Accented with a large bow at the top, with Acanthus leaf and flowers draped down the sides. The bottom of the frame is accented with what appears to be two Olive Branches crisscrossed and tied together with a bow. The inner rim of the frame is accented with lovely raised detailing. What a magnificent painting to have in your collection, truly Rare and a One-of-a-Kind piece.
