Narcissus, the talented and beautiful believed that he was above all - so much so that staring into the pool of his own reflection he fell in love with his own image. Unable to break his gaze, he lay there until expiring. It was Nemesis who led him to these reflecting waters, for she was a goddess of balance and retribution. The arrogance of Narcissus attracted her attention, and for his hubris she punished him.

In Greek, Nemesis means ‘’to give what is due’’ - she despises those who rise high in arrogance or those who possess an overabundance of wealth and talent used selfishly. She takes matters into her own hands to correct these imbalances. In Imperial Rome, she was merged with traits from Fortuna - making her the deity of changing fortunes and balances. Thus she was patroness of the Gladiators, who sought her favor to tilt the hands of fortune in their time of need.

This cast resin statue is finished in metallic bronze to impart the appearance and feel of a bronze statuette.

10 7/8'' Tall
