Circa 1st to 2nd Century AD

A beautiful naturalistic head of a nobel young man in an incredible state of preservation with inlaid eyes, prominent nose,  brow ridge, and stippled hair. A high cloak evident on neck. The wide open eyes are inlaid with contrasting black-and-white glass components making them really come alive.
The naturalistic appearance of this man is in keeping with second-century trends in all kinds of funerary portraiture, and the tendency of masks of the time to adopt Roman-style facial features and hair more consistently than before has been observed.
Size 7 ½ in. (19 cm.) high + custom base.
