I enlarged this to find that she's even a bit more frightening ... do you think the original configuration had what looks like some fluid coming off her face and down her body?

I think I need to learn more about Greek mythology! (She is Greek, right?)

Now THAT is dramatic! I love it, scary or not. I'd put it in my living room if I could.

I'm glad she has all that water with that dragon looking up at her. She just may need something put his fire out!

Wonderful! So monumental!

@ Jacob: She is indeed Greek. Hygieia means "health".

She does look rather lush ;-)
