Object Description

An ancient Greek terracotta hollow-moulded head fragment of a female figure from the Hellenistic period. The figure is depicted with hair braided towards the back of her head ending in a bun at the nape. Her facial features are rendered naturalistically, considerably clear and evident. The head has been modelled in a two-part mould: traces of the joining seam can be seen at the mid-way point vertically. The piece was probably part of a bigger statue.

The piece is supplied with a custom-made stand.

Date: Circa 3rd-1st Century BC
