3D model description

This impressive larger than life marble group sculpture illustrates an episode from Ovid's Metamorphosis. Andromeda, tied to a rock, is to be delivered to an ocean monster which terrors the region, sent by Neptune to avenge Juno's outrage over the beauty of the princess. Perseus, the son of Jupiter and Danae, kills the dragon by presenting it the head of Medusa who would turn her enemies to stone. Perseus delivers Andromeda after marrying her.

The sculpture was executed between 1689 and 1684 as a commission for King Louis XIV, probably with the collaboration of the sculptor Christophe Veyrier. It was originally placed in the gardens of the Palace of Versailles in 1685 before coming to The Louvre, Paris, where it is on permanent display.
