Object Description

An exquisite example of a Roman marble head fragment of the Divine Child, Harpocrates. The god is depicted with a youthful face, the roundness of his features exemplifying the child-like quality. He is depicted with a rounded chin and large, deep-set, almond eyes. His lips are full and slightly parted, a hint of smile. His hair is tied to the top of his head in a small topknot whilst elegant curls cascade around his face, adding to the youthful quality of his appearance. The piece is mounted on a custom-made stand. Height indicated includes the height of the stand.
