This statue is made after a tomb of a wine trader from 220 AD. Nowadays it is part of the collection of the Landesmuseum in Trier.
A galley is depicted on the tombstone, the oars and the prow are depicted in detail. The oars are handled by rowers (who were no slaves) and barrels of wine are stored on the deck. Galleys like this were used on both the sea and large rivers like the Rhine. Presumably the wine is Moselle wine that was exported along the Limes.
This statue is made of plaster alabaster, its length is 36 cm and its height is 20 cm.
This item is produced in limited quantities only. This means that every piece is unique. Sizes & finish may vary lightly from piece to piece.
