Bronze statuette of a dwarf with silver eyes

Greek or Roman

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 164

The dwarf wears a wreath and carries a large tray of eatables from which he is helping himself. He may be a caricature of a street hawker at a festival. He has an apron tied at the back of his neck, and a bag hangs at his side. The type is Hellenistic, but the execution is probably Roman.
