About this object

A small male head from a votive statuette. The facial features have significantly eroded but the almond shaped and slightly bulgy eyes can be seen. The man has short hair and he wears a wreath with a thick line of hair on the forehead and underneath the wreath. The neck of the head is very tall, the ears are very realistically sculpted. The back of the head is very flat.
