Marble head of a veiled goddess


On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 160

Despite its worn condition, this head radiates with the serenity and power of Late Classical art. The series of holes drilled in the hair probably held a metal diadem or wreath. The goddess Demeter may be represented.
