Block statue


Block statue

Small sculpture depicting a man sitting on the ground with the arms resting on his legs. Unfortunately there are no inscriptions and there it is not possible to determine which person is depicted as the type of block statue was certainly reserved for private people. The body is a single geometric mass from which only the head and legs and feet are just sketched. The man wears a wig helmet that covers his ears and falls to his shoulders. The facial features, usually detailed in this type of sculptures, are rather worn.
