The flower in the center of this young man's hair suggests that he may be one of the youthful gods associated with fertility and the resurrection rites of spring. Such deities as Adonis and Attis were worshipped in the classical world because their cults promised perpetual renewal and rebirth, a triumph over death. In the charming features of this young person we see youthful optimism, eternal and unaging. - (FZ.114)
