Description When this head was acquired by Henry Walters, it was incorrectly attached to the statue of a maiden. However, it actually belongs to an Archaistic statue. The tight curls over the forehead, the soft smile, and arched brows are Archaistic features, while the almond-shaped eyes are inspired by sculpture of the Classical period.
