Fortuna is the Roman goddess of good fortune, she personifies luck, and it is to her that the Roman's would have turned to if they wished their fate to be favourable. Fortuna is depicted with a ship's rudder to guide you to good fortune and a cornucopia to signify bounty, and she stands upon the wheel of fortune.

Many temples and shrines were dedicated to the mighty, but fickle, Fortuna, including the celebrated temple of Fortuna Redux in Rome, which Domitian built following his triumphant return from war in Germany in 93 AD.

The festival of Fors Fortuna is celebrated on June 24th to commemorate the foundation of the shrine to Fors Fortuna by King Tullius, who believed that Fortuna favoured him greatly. It was a day of celebration and popular with Romans from all walks of life, who would garland themselves in flowers, eat, drink and be merry.

Fortuna touched all areas of life, from military victories to safe and successful childbirth, and her goodwill was highly sought-after. It is, therefore, little surprise that the Roman people widely worshipped her throughout Italy and the Empire.

She is sometimes linked with the Greek goddess of good luck, Tyche, but Fortuna is most definitely a Roman deity.

Slight Second - This statue has some slight colour mottling caused by terracotta clay staining that was transferred from the mould during the making process.  You can see the extent of this in the image of her.

As with all our Museum Quality Replicas, we have made this, 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 one varies, you may not receive the same finish in the image, but you can be sure that it 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
