From the Style Collection.

Julia Domna was associated with Luna Lucifera, “the light-bearing Moon”, while Septimius Severus associated himself with Sol, god of the Sun. The concept of identifying themselves with Sun and Moon speaks of the eternal nature of the imperial house.

“A simply stunning portrait of Julia Domna.” (From the consignor)
