Augustus of Prima Porta Bust
Augustus of Prima Porta Bust (1st Century) at the Braccio Nuovo, Vatican Museum, Rome. Augustus of Prima Porta (Italian: Augusto di Prima Porta) is a 2.04m high marble statue of Augustus Caesar which was discovered on April 20, 1863, in the Villa of Livia at Prima Porta, near Rome. Augustus Caesar's wife, Livia Drusilla, retired to the villa after his death. The sculpture is now displayed in the Braccio Nuovo of the Vatican Museums.
Our grand-scale bust is sculpted in painstaking detail from the museum original, which was discovered on April 20, 1863 in the villa of Liva at Prima Porta, near Rome. As the commander-in-chief of the Roman army, Caesar Augustus is shown proclaiming triumph to his troops. From his distinctively handsome features to the detailed, bas-relief breastplate armor, this gallery statue has fascinated generations. An investment in classic European sculpture, our impressive life-sized sculptural bust is cast in quality designer resin with a faux stone finish as a sophisticated statement piece for your garden or home.
