Lady of War

A female bronze statue, representing War, holds a shield in front of her with her proper left hand and holds a sword vertically in her proper right hand. She wears a crown-shaped helmet and a dress adorned with armor details.

Bellona was an Ancient Roman war goddess. She is believed to be one of the numinous gods of the Romans (without a particular mythology and possibly of Etruscan origin), and is supposed by many to have been the Romans' original war deity, predating the identification of Mars with Ares.
