Relief of a soldier
Tanasi, Davide; Kingsland, Kaitlyn; Hassam, Stephan; Amico, Frank
Plaque depicts the head of a soldier in profile. The young man has a well-defined eyebrow and a prominent nose over full lips and a well-defined chin. The neck is strong and unadorned. The hair along the forehead and in front of the ear is portrayed in tufts. On the head is an elaborate helmet with a braided band across the forehead and a chinstrap decorated with a scroll pattern between the braided band and the chin. The strap under the chin is unadorned. The helmet descends in back to cover the nape of the neck. The helmet itself is worked in wavy horizontal rows and adorned with a ram's horn worked in three longitudinal rows of dots; the horn curls out of the braid over the temple and back above the ear. At the crown of the helmet, strands of loose hair flow freely from a funnel of horizontal bands.
