Greek Stone Head of a Male Youth

$458.22

A stone rendering of a Greek male youth’s head. His hair is depicted through decisive carvings to give the impression of curls, while the face is simply but clearly rendered. The face shows slightly hollowed eye sockets on either side of the long, straight nose, and thick, incised lips. This was likely once part of a full statue.

Date: Circa 3rd Century BC

It is most likely that the head was originally part of a larger statue, as is indicated by the rough break-point at the end of the neck, showing where it would have been attached. There is also a hole in the neck of the piece, at which point the head would have held a metal pole or rod to strengthen the integrity statue.
