Head from a votive statuette

About this object

A very small and round head from a votive underlife statue, possibly of the type of the temple boys. The eyes are big and bulgy and the hair is curved in a cross hatched pattern which may suggest that he is wearing a fillet. Most the right side of the statue has eroded.
