Seller: artemisgallery (669) 100%, Location: Louisville, CO, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 381698872293 Roman Marble Fragment - Head of a Ram Roman, ca. 1st century CE. This is a fragment of a sculpture that included a ram's head; it may have been part of a funerary monument or something in the private home of an elite. In antiquity, Roman sculpture was richly decorated with colorful painting, gilding, silvering, inlays, etc., so this piece was probably very decorated at one time -- the holes where the eyes are probably indicate that they were once inlaid. The ram was a common symbol of authority in Roman art; rams were also sometimes sacrificed as religious offerings. However, animals were not common subjects of Roman sculptors, and so this ram was probably once part of a sculpture depicting the followers of Pan/Faunus.
