This lovely bust, of natural buff terracotta, is an excellent example of the awakening sophistication of Italic artists, who, over the following two centuries, fused native traditions with imported ones and gave birth to the multifaceted art of Late Republican Rome. Sculpted lifesize, the head of a goddess is characterized by well-detailed features, her face with large, almond-shaped eyes, the full rounded lips with a slight archaic smile, she is wearing a short polos over hair styled in light waves that frame her face.
Condition: Age cracks professionally conserved with fill and minor cosmetic overpainting, small losses to the slip at the base of the neck, overall intact and in very good condition.
