Seller: artancientltd (9,403) 99.6%, Location: Huntingdon, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 201025928804 A rare ancient Roman bronze figure of a comic actor, dating to around the 2nd - 3rd century A.D. With a slender, simple form, the bronze cast figure is shown wearing a comic actor's mask and standing nonchalantly on a short plinth. Dressed in a tunic and close fitting patterned trousers, the right hand grasps the left wrist. The eyes clearly incised, the long hair reaches down to his lower back. Roman actors had bad reputations and their morals challenged even the decadence of Roman society. Their performances could be lewd, highly sexual and offensive. Yet these theatrical shows remained hugely popular with ordinary Romans. This piece, likely the finial of a short blade or tool, reflects their popularly and prominent place in Roman culture. An attractive, genuine and fascinating Roman bronze depiction. Height mounted: 3 1/2 inches. Height of bronze: 2 3/4 inches. Condition: Very good, unrestored. Provenance: Ex.
