Head of a Woman with Braids


Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description This piece may be dated by the details of the hairstyle, especially the position of the braids, which are wrapped around the head like a tiara. The deep-set, inner corners of the eyes and the angle at which the head is tilted will become common features of later Hellenistic sculpture.
