Abstract

Head with neck and shoulder depicts a young man gazing forward, his head inclined toward his left shoulder. Hair is arranged in ringlets around his face, held by a filet. The hair behind the filet radiates in rows toward the crown. At the nape, the hair is rolled up in large curls over the filet. Part of the crown of the head is broken away. The face is smooth. The eyes seem vacant; they are defined by the eyelids and set high in the face. The nose and lips are small but well-defined. A garment is draped over the left shoulder.
