Terracotta head of a boy


On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 171

The head, probably from a figure of "temple boy" type, is mold-made and hollow. There is a hole at the top of the head, probably for venting. The chin is chipped. He has an ovoid face, sharply ridged eyelids, fleshy lips, and short hair indicated with thin grooves.
