Description
This very fine bust depicts a male with delicate features, a broad smooth chest and curly hair framing the face. The head is covered by a veil,(or a himation), which reaches down the back. Possessing a superb sense of dignity, of gentleness and poignant immediacy, the face is alive with feeling and emotion. The sculptor has managed to convey the image of someone who exudes an instantaneous appeal, while at the same time conveying a sense of mystery--the mystery of life, of departed souls and of the Etruscan people themselves. - (PF.5347)
