This statue is carved from white marble and depicts an ichthyocentaur grasping at a female nude, likely a depiction of the Greek god Triton and his consort, Libya. In Classical Greek art, the ichthyocentaur was a sea-being depicted as having the forelegs of a horse, the tail of a fish, and the upper body of a man and was often depicted as a mighty ruler of the ocean depths. Sold as is, this sculpture has had restoration work done to restore minor damage on its base.
