Maria Amalia Christine, daughter of the Saxon Elector August II, married at the age of 13 to King Charles IV of Naples, asked her husband to resume the excavations at the foot of Mount Vesuvius. In 1763 the discovery of Pompeii could be proved - an epochal event. Thus the sculptor Johann Carl Schönheit found his templates in the Collection of Classical Antiquities in Dresden, because the first antique works of art from Pompeii and Herculaneum had already arrived there.
