Description
This elegant Roman marble bust depicts a young woman. Her hair has been parted down the middle. The front locks have been braided, and they frame her face and cover her ears. Considering the cost of commissioning such a work, and the value of the material itself, it is likely that this young woman was a member of the Roman elite. She could have been the daughter of a Senator, or perhaps a wealthy merchant. Her individual likeness has been captured, filtered with a dose of idealism fit for such a portrait. With her wide open eyes and sweetly smiling mouth, we sense a warmth in this bust that belies the cold nature of the stone. - (X.0365)
