Male Figure, Possibly with Dwarfism


Description Provenance Credit
Description The naked male figure is running to the right while glancing backwards over his right shoulder. In his outstretched hands he holds a ring and a ribbon, both common attributes of Aphrodite, the goddess of love. Two small holes in the top of his bald head reveal that some sort of attribute (a wreath?) was originally attached here. The figure may be depicted as having the characteristics of dwarfism.
Provenance Henry Walters, Baltimore [date and mode of acquisition unknown]; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
