Lares (singular: Lar) were guardian deities in ancient Roman religion. These little figurines were placed in Roman households to observe, protect and influence all that happened within the boundaries of the home. <br> <br> This example, a reproduction of an original in the Museum of Gallo-Roman Civilization at Lyon, France, is thought to be from the 1st Century. Before being acquired by the Museum in 1885, it belonged to a private collection in Lyon, but its precise origin is unknown. Originally the figurine would have held a patera (a small shallow dish used for rituals) in his right hand and the horn of plenty (a horn containing food and drink in endless supply) in his left. <br> <br> The distinctive features of this figurine are the noble expression of the face, the lively movement of the body and the elegance of the draped clothing.

A resin replica of a Roman Lar deity, based on a 1st century original housed in the Museum of Gallo-Roman Civilisation in Lyon, France.

Lares were guardian deities in ancient Roman religion. Lar figurines were placed in Roman households to protect the home.

This sculpture is inspired by the 1st century artefact, which would have originally held a patera ritual dish in one hand and a cornucopia horn in the other. The movement of the Lar’s draped clothing and his spritely step convey a lively nature.

A fun and sophisticated home ornament inspired by ancient history.
