Bronze patinated on the original base of Sienna marble Brocatello.
Italy / Naples/ circa 1880

The identity of the representation is unclear to this day. Archaeologists attribute it to the mythological figures of Dionysus or the philosopher Plato.

The Swiss archaeologist Karl Weber discovered this representation around 1750 during his excavations in the Villa dei Papiri, near Herculaneum in the Gulf of Naples. During these excavations, several other busts of the Hellenistic period were discovered.

Workshop: Sabatino de Angelis & Son Naples

Sabatino de Angelis and his sons ran a bronze art workshop in Naples, where he was allowed to make fonts of sculptures representing the finds of Herculaneum.
