Limestone head of a man wearing a helmet


On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 171

The face has a smiling expression, the nose is slightly hooked, the eyes almond-shaped, the eyebrows high and thick, the ears schematic, the frontal locks jagged. The tall helmet has a smooth surface and the peak is nothing more than a stump. On the back is just a bit of the hair that projected below the helmet.
