AN ETRUSCAN TERRACOTTA VOTIVE HEAD OF AN ALEXANDRIAN YOUTH 2nd Century B. C.

"Just as Achilles and Homer's Illiad had served both as a cultural identity and a personal role model for previous generations of Greeks, now the cult of Alexander would now influence the personal, civic, and fashion choices of both Greek and non-Greek peoples for generations thereafter."

The hollow-moulded head modeled and tooled at the front showing a portrait of a young man of Alexander's features with thick wavy hair, slightly idealized features with marked irises and pupils. 24 cm high. Provenance: Acquired 1975, Freiburg, European private collection.
