ROMAN BRONZE STATUETTE

£520.00

Measurements: 5 cm – height

 

Description: A finely modelled Ancient Roman bronze statuette, depicting a nude male figure, shown seated while holding on his left hand a lyre. Anatomical features are rendered in a naturalistic manner.

 

The figure can possibly portray the Roman god Apollo or the Greek god Orpheus, the mythical lyre-player from Thrace. The relationship between the deity and the music is here emphasized by the presence of the string musical instrument.

 

Period: Circa 1st- 3rd century AD

 

Condition: Fine, complete and intact. Pierced to the bottom and to the front for suspension.
