Description
The graceful profile impression this intaglio makes bears a remarkable resemblance to Cleopatra, last of the Ptolemies. It depicts a woman with bound hair and steady gaze, whose beauty seems to radiate from some inner source. It is a portrait of such exquisite sensitivity as to almost surely have been made from life by a master artisan. When we gaze upon it, we feel as if we know the sitter intimately. - (Z.0113)
