<p>A reduced-size decorative bust of Susanna, who was famed for her extraordinary beauty and appears in Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox versions of the Bible.</p>

Exclusive to the British Museum, a bust of Saint Susanna.

This serene bust is inspired by the marble statue of Saint Susanna by Francois du Quesnoy, commissioned for the church of Santa Maria di Lorento in Rome. The statue, completed in 1629, garnered the artist high praise for his impressive ability to represent cloth in stone. Here Susannah, who is martyred in early versions of the Bible, embodies a unification of the beauty of classic Greek nude sculpture with the Christian ideals of modesty.

A beautiful home ornament inspired by Greek and Christian art.
