Female portrait
Sculpture
2nd-3rd century A.D.
Bigio morato marble

The facial features of this head, carved from precious bigio morato marble, are so individualized that the piece must be recognized as a portrait. The particular rendering of the eyes, with their incised irises and pupils, suggests that it was made in the 2nd or 3rd century A.D.

Inventory: Inv. MB 198
