Slightly under life-size, and preserved down to the shoulders. It is sensitively carved, rendering lightly chubby and soft shapes--distinctive of a child's head.

Authenticity guaranteed. A certificate + official Aphrodite Gallery authenticity hang-tag will be issued to the winning bidder. Everything sold by Aphrodite Gallery has been legally acquired, we have been selling antiquities for over 15 years and not one negative feedback from a client! Buy with confidence.


Intact, repair done on the nose. Offered with a custom base display stand.
