Rape meaning abduction in the context of giambologna sculpture: according to tite-live in the history of Roma, the Roman state is powerful but vulnerable due to a shortage of women, and romulus solicits mixed marriages for his men among his neighbours, the sabins, have been rejected. He planned and staged a deceit: during the games of the festival in honor of neptunus equistris, to which the sabines were invited, the Romans took the women at his signal.
He promised the indignant sabins legal marriage, civil possessions and privileges, and children: he begged them only to appease the ardour of their anger, and to joyfully abandon their affections to those to whom the fortune had recorded their people. [He added,] that the wounds of love and friendship often arise; and that they should find [the Romans] more kind husbands because of this, because each of them, in addition to the fulfilment of his marital duty, would strive with all his power to substitute for the need of their parents and the homeland. To this were added the caresses of the husbands, apologizing what they had done under the pretext of passion and love, arguments that worked best on the women's court.
The spirit of the delighted virgins was soon well appeased. And only came to an end when the sabine women, the swollen hair and the torn clothes (of course), threw themselves in the middle of the battlefield and spoke to their husbands and fathers of the necessary common sense.This sculpture is historical and would fit perfectly with anyone who fell but rose up. This sculpture was cast according to the old lost wax casting method and dyed with a brown patina finish for perpetuation. The sculpture is mounted on a black marble base with the signature of the milo artist.
