Work: Funerary urn (Fragment of the sculpture)
Author: Jean-Jacques Pradier (Geneva, 1790 - Rueil, 1852)
Technique: Marble of Carrara
The urn is adorned with the portraits of the deceased and Asclepius, the god of medicine.
These two figures are surrounded by theological virtues: on the left - The Hope and the Faith, on right - The Charity. The arrangement of the composition of this relief much like a bacchic vase, which is kept in the Louvre Museum.
