Capitoline Museum - Artefacts Antiquities - Rome { 5 galleries }

Pictures of the artefacts and antiquities of the Capitoline Museums Rome. The Capitoline museums are an important museum of Roman artefacts situated in the old Palatine Palace on a hill overlooking the ruins of the ancient Roman forum of Rome. Included in the exquisite exhibits of the The Capitoline museums are the Capitoline Venus and the bronze statue of Marcus Aurelius on horseback as well as remnants of a gigantic statue of Constantine. One of the many styles of Roman Venus, or Aphrodite, statues is named after the The Capitoline Venus statue. It is a "modesty" style with Venus in a pose having possibly been disturbed whist washing. In the Capitoline Venus style she is in the process of hiding her nudity in a modest gesture. The bronze statue of Marcus Aurelius in the Capitoline museums is the original of the copy that stands in the small Capitoline square outside. The bronze is an iconic statue of an Emperor in triumph that has been copied since the Renaissance to depict "The Great". A well known example is the bronze of Cosimo Medici in Florence. Our pictures of the Museum of the Capitoline Museums are exclusive to Funkystock Photo Library. (Property Rights The Trustees of the Capitoline Museum)
