Perseus and Medusa
At the head of Cabability Brown’s mile-long lake, stands Perseus, at the moment he has slain Medusa, holding her head aloft!
This iconic statue is a 19th Century copy of Benvenuto Cellini’s original 1550s masterpiece, now at the Loggia dei Lonzi, in Florence.
The replica was one of the biggest free-standing bronze sculptures in the UK after being commissioned by the 2nd Duke of Sutherland.
Perseus will be absent from Trentham this Autumn. He’ll be away from 23rd August to be part of the Royal Academy of Art’s major Autumn exhibition, “Bronze”. Don’t worry, he’ll be back here just in time for Christmas. Find out more in our news section.
