Head from a votive statue

Currently not on display


A head of a female or a youth wearing a wreath from a votive statue. The hair on the forehead below the wreath is arranged in double rows of curls. On the crown of the head the hair is made of shallow grooves that spring forward from a central parting. The back of the hair is arranged in a projecting peak while the criss cross grooves suggest that the hair was kept in a confining net.
