Morning

This marble figure shows a woman with a wreath on her head and holding flowers in her raised left hand. The figure is of a nymph, who according to Greek mythology was associated with fertile growing things, such as trees or water. At her feet is the figure of Cupid.

It is one of pair, the other work also showing a nymph and Cupid, but entitled ‘Night’, on the opposite side of the staircase.
