The reliefs 'Night and Day' are Thorvaldsen’s most popular. As opposites they represent the two halves of a day.

Night personified floats passively over the sky. Her eyes are closed as are the eyes of the children in her embrace. 
Her hair is braided with poppies, for their sleep-inducing capacities, known since Antiquity.

Day personified flies actively across the sky with her head held high. She looks over her shoulder and fixes her gaze on the small torch-bearing boy here proudly symbolizing the light and the sun.

Reproduced in fine Gypsum Plaster by Timothy Richards for Modern Souvenir Co. - avilale singly or as a pair.
