Bust of Adonis

NZ$875

Adonis, like Narcissus, was a beautiful youth in Greek mythology. He was loved by both Aphrodite, goddess of love and beauty, and Persephone, goddess of the underworld. One day, while hunting, Adonis was killed by a wild boar. In answer to Aphrodite's pleas, Zeus allowed him to spend half the year with her and the other half in the underworld.
