by Raffaelle Monti

This sculpture resides at Chatsworth House in England, but it has been on tour in the United States and was even featured in the 2005 film Pride and Prejudice (see movie scene below).

Article about Vestal Virgins by The Girl Museum: “The Veiled Vestal Virgin.”

And here’s an article by ThoughtCo about “The Great Exhibition of 1851” where the statue was first on exhibit. 

Article by Sotheby’s that shows how they prepared the statue for travel: “Watch as One ‘Treasure from Chatsworth Prepares to Travel 3,400 Miles to New York.” (or watch the video below)
