Description

Sappho ancient Greek poetess Museum Bust . This is a replica of an original from the National Archaeological Museum, Athens. Made of cast stone with bronze finish and placed on pedestal. About: This bust was taken from an original ancient sculpture now in the National Museum in Athens. Sappho was an Ancient Greek poet, born on the island of Lesbos. Later Greeks included her in the canonical list of nine lyric poets. Her birth was sometime between 630 and 612 BC, and it is said that she died around 570 BC, but little is known for certain about her life. The bulk of her poetry, which was well-known and greatly admired throughout antiquity, has been lost, but her immense reputation has endured through surviving fragments. The adjectives deriving from her name and place of birth (Sapphic and Lesbian) came to be associated with female homosexuality. She is the most well known poetess of ancient Greece, although some would say of the whole world. She has been loved and praised in her time, and still is, for the beauty and the tenderness in her love lyrics, and for her direct approach to readers feelings. Looks like she loved music and every kind of beauty. She has been called “the Tenth Muse” and the “mortal Muse” (probably the muse of lyrics and erotic poetry. National Archaeological Museum, Athens
