Listing Date: 26 August 1992
Last Amended: 22 September 1997

This statue, which is probably an C18 or early C19 copy of a classical prototype, was probably placed here when the garden was laid out, either contemporary with the late remodelling of Vaynol Hall or in 1913 when there are references in the estate papers to 'Garden Alterations'.
Of white marble. A standing draped figure of a goddess on a circular plinth, set on a low square pedestal. She looks down, and her arms are gently outstretched. The figure is unsigned. One hand has become detached.
Included for its intrinsic interest, and for its group value as part of the classicising landscape setting for Vaynol Hall.
