Description

  • A Roman Marble Head of Ganymede
or Paris or Attis, probably after a Classical Greek original sculpture, turned sharply to his right, his youthful face with parted lips and heavy-lidded eyes, his long wavy hair parted in the center and falling in corkscrew curls over the sides and nape of the neck, the ear-flaps of his Phrygian cap pulled up and knotted in back; Thasian marble, minor fills to lips.
