Head from a votive statuette

About this object

A very small male head from an underlife votive statue. The face has almond shaped and bulgy eyes. The young male is wearing a wreath that can just about be discerned on his head, and a fillet at the crown of his head. His hair at the back is long and reaches the base of his neck. His ears are well defined. Most of the facial features have significantly eroded.
