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

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.

Slight Second - A second is an item with slight defects that do not affect the structure of the vessel but might be visible on close inspection.  Seconds of this statue have small crack, please see images of the second variation to for an example of theses crack.  Please be aware that you may not get the exact statue in the image. 


White Earthenware or Pipe clay


Approx. 155 mm tall, 60 mm base diameter


As with all our Museum Quality Replicas, we have made this pot, as the original would have been, entirely by hand from natural clay and using replicas of the types of tools that the ancient makers would have used. As each pot varies, you may not receive the vessel in the image, but you can be sure that your pot will be one of a kind due to the variations caused by the firing process.


All items are sent using a second class postal service; if you wish to have an item sent first class, please contact me for a quote. Many Thanks
