Details
Within every Roman house there would have been a sacred shine, or lararium, dedicated to the guardian spirits of the home.  These lararia  would have been visited daily by the family members, who would perform rituals  in order to maintain the protection of these domestic spirits.  A key part of every lararium would have been the statues of significant gods and goddesses, who the family could leave offering for. 

One such goddess is the Dea Nutrix, or Mother Goddess.  This figure is based on one found at Margidunum near Nottingham and shows a Mother seated in a basketwork chair, feeding two babies.

 Materials

White Earthenware or Pipe clay

Approx. 155 mm tall, 60 mm base diameter

Production

This replica Roman pot has been hand made in Northumberland by Potted History, based on an original artefact.  It has been fired to a temperature of between 800 & 1000 Centigrade, to emulate the same techniques that the original potters would have employed nearly two thousand years ago. This process often results in variations of the surface colour and texture, as is common with the original Roman Pottery and giving each piece it's unique character.
