Long Description:
Cleopatra was the last member of the Ptolomeic dynasty in Egypt. Due to her turbulent life, most people know about her from movies, plays and books. She made alliances with Rome through her marriage with Julius Ceasar...and then became an enemy when she allied (and married) Marc Anthony.
Known for the probably mythical death by an asp, she is depicted in this 17th century marble sculpture naked and placing the asp to her breast.
The artist is anonymous.
