Bust of a Standing Man

Description Conservation Provenance Inscription Credit
Description This bust, broken off across the breast and upper arms, was once probably part of a seated tomb statue. There are no traces of a rear pillar. He wears a short, close-fitting wig of rectangular rows of curls, which leaves his modeled ears uncovered. He originally wore a short kilt, but now only the top of it is preserved, to be found at his back. His eyelids are carved. His pectorals are indicated, and he possesses a bipartite torso. His arms are close to his body. Other than being broken above the waist, this piece is well preserved.
