A marble statue probably representing Ceres, Roman goddess of agriculture. A standing figure wearing chiton and himation, with a small bowl in the outstretched left hand, two fruit in the right. An antique torso, right arm and hand are possibly original. The work is Italian, probably from Rome, and made in the eighteenth century, a restored antiquity. Restorations include the head, left hand, bowl and part of draperies and the base.
