Marble female figure


On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 151

The remains of an ancient repair are of special interest. The head had broken from the long thin neck. A channel was cut into the sides of the neck and the head and then filled with lead. This technique was an established means of joining pieces in the first millennium B.C. The repair thus may be contemporary with the piece or date from more than one thousand years later.
