Fragment of a head from a votive statue


Part of a lifesize head of a male and bearded votive statue. The man has the faded smile typical of the Cypriot votive sculpture of the Archaic period. His eyes are bulgy and almond shaped and the eye brows are in a low arch close to the eyes. He wears a wreath which has severely faded with a line of hair underneath the wreath on his forehead. The hair of the beard are in thick spiral curls. The back and most of the crown of the head are missing.
