Stele Funeraire D'aristomacheYour model is disabled. For more details go to Edit properties3D Model
Funerary stele of Aristomachus, 4th century before Christ, Attic production, marble. Musée d’Art et d’Histoire (Musée du Cinquantenaire, Brussels, Belgium). Made with ReMake and ReCap pro from AutoDesk.
This stele bears on the pediment the inscription “Aristomaché daughter of Syros”. The young woman seems to have died before marriage, otherwise her husband’s name would be given rather than her father’s name. She is represented sitting, wearing a tunic and a coat covering her head. She shakes the hand of a bearded man in a cloak. In the background stands another woman. The gesture of shaking hands (dexiosis) has a strong meaning in the Greek world, affirming the links between people often members of the same family, at the time of a difficult separation. It makes it possible to evoke in a strong way the family group.
