Roman Goddess Aurora Statue. Aurora is the Latin word for dawn, the goddess of dawn in Roman mythology and Latin poetry. Like Greek Eos and Rigvedic Ushas (and possibly Germanic Ostara), Aurora continues the name of an earlier Indo-European dawn goddess, *Hausos. Balancing atop her grand plinth, our statue is based on a classic 19th-century sculpture of the goddess Aurora that once crowned an elegant garden fountain. Masterfully sculpted with beautiful tresses and flawless form, our almost life-size centerpiece is well suited for display in your garden, while our scaled version would make a stunning centerpiece in any home gallery. Cast in quality designer resin, is highlighted with an antique stone finish to make them indistinguishable from the original.
