Marble head of a kouros (youth)

Greek, Attic

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 155

The surface of the head has suffered from modern cleaning and recutting. Cleaning with an acidic abrasive has imparted a soapy sheen to the face, and recutting has altered the appearance of the eyes and mouth.
