Like mother, like son by louannwarren

Like mother, like son

This is Semiramis, Assyrian queen in 800 B.C. She became the nation’s ruler when she killed her husband. Her son killed her a short time later so he could be king. She was designed and carved from a single block of marble by American sculptor William Wetmore Story in 1873. She’s quite imposing, displayed in the main public hall of the Dallas Museum of Art.

A wonderful sculpture - a woman with attitude - I detect the expression of domination and bitterness on her face -- yet a fav for me !

Such a wonderful and lifelike sculpture! The lighting is wonderful and the story so interesting.

A ruthless family indeed...power driven & I would keep away from that family! Beautiful sculpture though, soft folds in that gown she’s wearing.

I always marvel at how sculptors see things in the material before they start! Beautiful sculpture & quite a perilous thing to be part of this ambitious family I think!

The details on this sculpture are amazing. I can't believe how life-like that hand looks- the whole sculpture for that matter. Beautiful shot.
