This bronze group depicts Aeneas carrying his elderly father Anchises. In Greco-Roman mythology, Aeneas was a Trojan hero. After the city of Troy fell to the Greeks during the Trojan War and was burnt, he and his family fled to Italy (where his descendants founded Rome) and it is this dramatic moment which is shown in this terracotta. This was a popular subject in sculpture, also depicted for instance by Bernini, as well as in painting. Anchises carries a household god of Troy, which he took with him to Italy.
