Lot 0042A
Italy, Etruscan, ca. 4th to 3rd century BCE. A solid cast bronze figure depicting a nude male, possibly a warrior or a god, standing with his right arm raised, a central perforation through that hand suggesting that he once held a weapon or attribute, his left arm forward with a clenched fist, his left leg stepping/striding forward. The figure's visage is quite dramatic with bold facial features and a caplike coiffure. A marvelous rendering displaying the Etruscan penchant for theatrical depictions with that expressive face, as well as the ancient artist's strong interest in delineating physiognomy and movement of this heroic yet human form. Gorgeous patina. Block stand. Size: 2.375" H (6 cm); 3.125" H (7.9 cm) on included custom stand.
