“The Face That Launched a Thousand Ships.”

According to Greek legend, she was the daughter of Zeus and Leda. She left her husband Menelaus for Paris of Troy, indirectly causing the Trojan war when Menelaus attacked Troy and took Helen back.

Restorers' Comment: She was totally refurbished, including removing 50 years worth of accumulated grime.
