Niobe Mask

Tax included.

Greek mythology portrait mask of Niobe, handmade by the Nicholas H Wood studio. The plaster wall sculpture has a hook on the back for hanging. This plaster cast is portrait fragment of a large Niobe bust.

In Greek mythology, Niobe, the daughter of Tantalus and wife of Amphion, the king of Thebes, faced a tragic fate. Her seven sons and seven daughters met their demise at the hands of Apollo and Artemis as a consequence of her excessive pride. After the loss of her children, Niobe pleaded with the gods to end her pain. Zeus, moved by Niobe's sorrow, transformed her into a rock, turning her heart to stone. Yet, even in this form, Niobe's eternal grief persisted. Her ceaseless tears flowed from the rock, serving as a poignant symbol of a mother's enduring anguish.
