Description
Black Africans were known to the Greeks and Romans, and they appear in art as symbols of the exotic, unknown realms beyond the borders of the Classical world. This beautifully observed sculpture served a practical function as a fountainhead, but the sensitive workmanship elevates it to the status of an artistic masterpiece. In its own age, it was an object of superb quality, and time has only added to its rarity and beauty. - (Z.0262)
