Figure of a man.

Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek


The figure is made of limestone. The lower part of the body is missing and the head has been broken off. The nose is damaged, and there are some marks on the body. Traces of red paint are visible to the naked eye on the dress and lips.

Description of object

The man is dressed in a tight cloak and a wreath, the leaves of which cannot be identified. In his right hand he carries a branch, and presumably he had a small animal in his left. His face is dominated by large almond-shaped eyes, a broad nose and a slightly smiling mouth. Traces of red paint on dress and lips.
