Pair of Lar Statuettes, Bronze

The Lares were very important in the roman cult. They were protective deities, worshiped in several ways, they were guardians for streets, fields, houses, cities or even whole countries. 

Most important were the domestic Lares, who observed and protected the house and the occupants. With a spiritual connection to the ancestors of the housefather they were mostly worshiped in small temples or shrines. The so-called Lararia could be simply painted on the walls (pic. 2, Pompei), but the roman upper class preferred real shrines or niches with statues from bronze or clay (pic. 3 &  4). The Lares were commonly accompanied by gods and goddesses with a special traditional relationship to the housefather and his family.
The Lar must be pleased by sacred offerings, then he would protect the house and fulfil the wishes of his family.
