Bust of Boy



Portrait of a boy restored on a modern bust. A young boy of around ten is portrayed. He has a typical ‘fringe’ hairstyle with the hair combed deeply and thickly onto the forehead. Individual hairs are depicted in the locks by claw-chiselling, and the locks have a slightly pointed flame-like termination. The eyes are large with modest indication of lids the lips are softly modelled. The bust is quite fleshy around the pectorals, a restoration. There is damage to the right cheek and the chin, and part of the nose is missing.
