Greek Marble bust of Alexander The Great
Item Details
Description
  • TITLE: Greek Marble bust of Alexander The Great
  • DESCRIPTION: This head depicts Alexander the Great with delicate, fine features. The eyes are set deep in the sockets, the chin is raised and the bone is barely visible beneath the rounded shape of the face. The details - deep gaze, shadow of the eye sockets - indicate an idealised representation of the Macedonian ruler. He has a haircut called anastole which allows the hair to fall over the forehead, forming a fringe or fringe, and the remaining hair to be shoulder-length or longer, forming a mane or crown.
  • DETAILS: Date/ Origin: Ancient Greek, End of the Hellenistic period-beginning of Roman Period; Material: Marble; Conservation: Small chip on nose, slight surface wear; Dimensions: 17 x 12 cm; Provenance: Acquired in June 1990, Alan G. Carey-Brooker, London / Pierre Bergé &Associés, Paris, 2019 / Private Collection Alain Marc Duriaux, 2019; Exhibited: Ifergan Collection, Málaga (2019-2020).
