Content and Structure

Scope and content

This item was lost in the fire in The Mackintosh Building at The Glasgow School of Art on 15th June 2018.

From the group of Niobe and her children at the Galleria Uffizi, Florence, Italy, originally found in Rome in 1583. Niobe boasted about her 14 children (the Niobids) to Leto, mother to only Artemis and Apollo. Leto demanded her children take revenge upon Niobe's hubris. Using arrows, Artemis killed Niobe's daughters and Apollo killed Niobe's sons. This cast shows one son cowering from the onslaught.
