Standing naked with weight on right leg, left leg relaxed, his head turned to the right and upwards, his lion-skin draped over the left forearm, the remains of a club in his left hand. Of beautiful, powerful Etruscan style; a fantastic early representation of the demi-God, who was worshipped for his strength and craftiness. This piece displays the beautiful qualities of Etruscan art; the figure has an elongated but elegant and almost abstract quality, the thin limbs contrasting with the thick buttocks and the facial features reduced to the essentials of form.

Unrestored with a beautiful deep green patina. Provenance: Ex. French private collection, acquired in Paris in the 1980's.
