Perseus With the Head of Medusa Statue, Trentham Gardens
Mid-C19 bronze cast of Benvenuto Cellini’s mid-C16 statue, ‘Perseus with the Head of Medusa’.

The statue of Perseus with the Head of Medusa is designated at Grade II* for the following principal reasons:

Architectural interest:

* as the only bronze cast of Benvenuto Cellini’s celebrated statue ‘Perseus with the Head of Medusa’; * for its artistic interest as one of the most important examples of Italian Mannerist sculptor; * for its use by Charles Barry in his scheme for an Italianate garden at Trentham Gardens, of which the statue forms a focal point on the main axis of the parterre garden.

Historic interest:

* for its association with the 2nd Duke of Sutherland, and its illustration of his social status in England and Europe, as well as his patronage of the arts.
