This terracotta sculpture depicts the bust of a Roman Senator or Emperor in armor and a gown. Hi gaze is directed at about a 45 degree angle. This is a magnificently robust life size bust. The garment has been fired in a white glaze. The bust has a 7″ stand/pedestal as its base. The underside of the base is signed illegibly and stamped, “MADE IN ITALY”. The 4 foot pedestal shown in the in situ picture is not a part of the bust and is not included. The contrasting colors of the glaze and unglazed and the bust’s detail make this a unique and beautiful classic sculpture reminiscent of ancient roman art. We have a second bust by the same artist, of a different man.
