This charming cast stone statue of Andromeda has been taken from a XIX century Italian white-marble original. The stone statue of Andromeda stands, scantily clad, clutching a robe to her right breast whilst manacled to a rocky outcrop. In classical mythology Andromeda was chained to a rock by her father to save his country from the ravages of the sea monster sent by Poseidon. This statue is made using cast limestone with a surface texture similar to that of portland stone. In a number of important ways it is markedly superior, one of its greatest advantages being price, which, piece for piece, is normally significantly less than that of quarried stone. As well as for use in gardens, lawn, terraces, courtyards, borders and woodland, this statue can also be used in interior design schemes, in a hall, library, stairway or reception room.
