About this object

A round head possibly of a male from a votive statuette. The man has big and bulgy eyes, wide but thin lips that are slightly smiling and a partially broken nose. The hair is short and the ears are very realistic and of a good size. The back of the head is missing and the limestone is very porous and flaky.
