Left Arm


Description Provenance Credit
Description Arm from a small statue, probably of a boy. The arm was raised nearly to shoulder level while the hand held something about which the fingers curled lightly, perhaps the rein of a chariot. The modeling is very fine. Just below the shoulder, near the broken edge, there is a solid cross section of bronze. Either a core is concealed or the arm is solid; the great weight proves that it is not hollow cast and empty.
Provenance Canessa Collection (said to be found in Greece); Henry Walters, Baltimore, 1906, by purchase; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
Credit Acquired by Henry Walters, 1906
