Head from a votive statue


A male head of a bearded man from a votive statue. The man is wearing a wreath. His hair is arranged in cylindrical locks under the wreath and ending on the edge in knobs with a low row on his forehead. His beard is short and was proably triangular and is also made out of locks of curls. Part of the nose and most of the jaw is broken. The almond shaped eyes and brows are well defined. The man has a faded smile and is typical of the lifesize or smaller devotional statues which would be wearing the chiton and the himation in the Greek manner and found in Cypriot sanctuaries of Apollo at Idalon and Phyla.
