Caryatid in Marmo Rosso Antico - Antiquity or 17 century

This very beautiful caryatid in Marmo Rosso Antico represents a Teleamon supporting at arm's length the weight of an overhanging element that has now disappeared. His mature face with a determined look, with a long beard and strong features, gives off great expressiveness. The remarkable design of his powerful musculature and the sensuality of his model are the mark of a sculptor of great talent.
This work was formerly made to find a place in a refined decorative set "after the Antique" such as one finds in Europe from the XVIth century to the beginning of the XVIIIth century.
However, the nature of this piece does not exclude completely that it could be a much older fragment, made by a Roman sculptor of Antiquity.
