Ancient Greek over Lifesize Hellenistic Marble Head of an Athlete, 300 BC
A Hellenistic over lifesize marble head of an athlete, circa 300 BC. Turned slightly to his left, the idealized oval face with deep set almond-shaped eyes, framed by a sweeping, prominent brow, the full lips slightly parted with the hint of a melancholic smile. The hair is swept back around the face, falling into a mass of tight, thick curls at the crown and tumbling down onto the neck and over the tops of the ears. A powerful piece of sculpture, full of pathos. Height: 13 1/4 inches or 14 inches as mounted. Provenance: From the collection of Heinrich Forkarth, Austria, acquired prior to 1970.
