Greek Over life-size Hellenistic Marble Head of an Athlete - 300 BC

A Hellenistic over life-size marble head of an athlete, circa 300 BC.

Turned slightly to his left, the idealised 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.
