Product description

Two replica plaques of Thorvaldsen's Night and Day reliefs.

Representing the two halves of a day personified, they are Thorvaldsen's most popular works and can be seen in the Sculpture Gallery.

Night floats passively over the sky. Her eyes are closed as are the eyes of the children in her embrace. Her hair is braided with poppies, for their sleep-inducing capacities.

Day flies actively across the sky with her head held high. She looks over her shoulder and fixes her gaze on the small torch-bearing boy here proudly symbolising the light and the sun.

Pack includes both plaques

Size 15 x 15 x 5cm
