Bronze mirror support in the form of a nude girl

Greek, Laconian

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 152

The girl stands on a frog, and the traces of feline feet at her shoulders must have belonged to animals that helped in the support of the mirror disk. She wears a band decorated with a ring and amulets and holds cymbals in her hands. Like the nude female supporting a mirror in an adjacent case (38.11.3), this figure was probably made by a Laconian artist.
