Large bronze Capitoline Wolf, iconic symbol of Rome
Do come in, ranger. Is it true what the bards sing? That with hatred your parents cast you into the wild, and that there you taught yourself to hunt, to survive? This is surely the source of your strength.
I have just the thing for you: a bronze reproduction of the Capitoline Wolf. It’s a medieval sculpture depicting the twins Romulus and Remus suckling a she-wolf. Legend has it that the twins were left to die on the bank of the Tiber river. Miraculously they survived, in part thanks to a she-wolf who nurtured them. They emerged strong. Romulus went on to slay Remus, found Rome, and reign as its first king.
Awe-inspiring, isn’t it? Rest assured, you shan’t find another 2-foot wide, 40 pound, Capitoline Wolf anywhere in the city.
Bronze with base: 15 1/2" H x 23" W. Marble base: 17" L X 10" W. 40 lbs.
