“Fate ch'io possa esser bello nel profondo della mia anima.”


Head of Ephebe

Imperial Rome, 1st-2nd century AD

White marble

h. cm 22

The face of the young Ephebe has a calm expression.

His hair, which frames his face, tied with a ribbon, is represented with many small locks of hair thanks to the meticulous use of the chisel.

Good state of conservation (parts missing from nose and chin).

Expertise of Prof. Fiorella Foti.
