Hygea - Goddess of Health. On our first trip to Greece we visited Loutraki on the mainland . When I saw her I had to buy her but was nervous of taking her through customs. However there is a metal tag attaced to reproductions to prove they are bona fide. Years later I saw the original in Athens Museum . Isn't she lovley?

Are you ever tempted to stick sunglasses and a wig on her? :)
