Description: 
Last of her royal line, Cleopatra was said by Plutarch to have fair hair; I'm researching who Balzico's model was (there's one extant copy of a monograph on the sculpture I photographed in Rome in November 2017, that copy is in a Roman library where I'm going to have to go to read it; there may be an account of who modeled for the body - the face closely resembles Roman coins of the time, which was probably what Balzico used). The snake may have been apocryphal, smuggled in, so hard to spot right off. She wasn't so much attractive as brilliant, speaking 12 languages, and the wealthiest human to date.
