This magnificent little statue--probably copied
after a larger work--evokes the graceful
strength of the warrior god Mars. He wears a
splendid crested helmet and typical Roman
armor while leaning on a now vanished spear.
Though we see him here in a quiet moment of
repose, we sense that just beneath the surface
lurks a tremendous, untapped power. At any
instant he might leap into action.
