    This is an Etruscan Minerva the Healer 7BC. The little guy she is holding is some sort of healing dude.
    Yes I know this is a repro...Weinberg perhaps???
    Most likely it is a museum souvenir or even a souvenir from Italy.

    She is heavy, 15 ish inches tall and made out of what I assume is brass. Quite spectacular!

    And the biggest shocker of all???? The hubby likes it!!! Knock me down and call me Dorthy!

      Morning Eye! Took yesterday off and hit 7 seven thrifts with friends. I bought two things...and one was just to fill my empty hand syndrome...but my friends managed to fill the car to capacity. Great day.

      Ok Dorthy I know it's been awhile sorry but not much I could do about it. Well I'll be darn we do have luck sometimes, I think it's great & could it be bronze being so heavy just a thought.
