Jupiter was the father of Mars, the god of war. He was the most powerful god of all, wielding a thunderbolt. He is put into this Gallery, as he represents Rome, because the main emblem of rome was the eagle, an incarnation of Jupiter. He is also the grandfather of Romulus and Remus.
This statue of the god of war, Mars, is put into this short gallery because he is the father of Romulus and Remus, the founders of Rome. He wields a spear. He is also the son of Jupiter, giving him even more power. This artefact is one of the oldest statues of Mars.
This statue of a female figure most likely represents the mother of Remus and Romulus cradling her two sons.
Once Remus and Romulus were left in the Tiber, they were 'adopted' by a she-wolf. Romulus and Remus grew up around the she-wolf, growing strong muscles and brute force that would later form Rome.
This Artwork was created between 1720 and 1740. This is in the gallery not because of the chronological order, but because it is one of the few artworks created about the finding of Romulus an Remus.
Some archeologists believe that this head could Romulus, as it fits the description of the ancient writings. These descriptions led the Archeologists to believe that it could be Romulus. After they grew up into young men, Remus and Romulus went back to the place they grew up with the She-wolf, and decided to build a city there. After some quarrelling about where exactly it should be placed, Romulus killed his brother, and named the city after himself, Rome.
The Head of Augustus, the first emperor of rome, has owed all his power to Remus and Romulus. He and all the later emperors would later form an immense empire
This is a carving of Augustus, the first emperor.
