Seller: artemisgallery (696) 100%, Location: Louisville, CO, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 382508936577 Large / Fine Western Greek Protome of a Woman Ancient Greece, Archaic, ca. 650 to 480 BCE. A mold-made terracotta protome representing a female head, wearing a himation drawn up and over her head, with a scalloped fringe of bangs and long wavy locks elegantly framing her face and ears - a lovely visage presenting open, almond-shaped, lidded eyes, a relatively naturalistic nose, nicely contoured cheeks, a rounded chin, and that signature Archaic smile. Although the exact significance of this smile is unknown, scholars suggest that the ancient Greeks associated it with good health and well being. The bust is further delineated with a subtly modeled chest and a long neck. A wonderful example from this early period. Frosted lucite stand. Size: 6" W x 7.625" H (15.2 cm x 19.4 cm); 8.125" H (20.6 cm) on stand #124157 Condition: Surface wear and earthen deposits commensurate with age. Overall excellent.
