Head of a Person with a Very Round Face


Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description The large eyes and the round shape of the face with its full cheeks convey a youthful impression, but there are no indicators of the gender of the person portrayed. The face has several irregularities; the level of the pupils, the heights of the ridges above the eyes, and the length of the brows differ from another.
