650 Sold 'Bust Roman Imperial' - Met Museum and Eichholtz Collection - Marble and Granite

The "Bust Roman Imperial" pays homage to the classical beauty of ancient Greece. Handcrafted from marble, each piece is a unique work of art, distinguished by variations in color and veining. Romans often transformed these classical masterpieces into decorative sculptures, leaving an enduring legacy of timeless elegance. The Roman bust of a youth at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York typifies how the Romans often crafted decorative works by recreating the heads of well-known Greek sculptures on busts or rectangular herms. This carefully carved reproduction has been created in marble and rests upon a black granite plinth.
