Description
This beautifully patinated figure, dressed apparently in a soldier's tunic, may be an Iberian regional variation of Mars, the god of war. Such figures may have been offered to honor those fallen on the field of battle, or as an appeal to the god for victory. When we touch it we are swept back into another world--primitive, mysterious--yet one whose emotions were not that different from our own. - (FZ.006)
