A beautiful large white crystalline marble head of a Greek goddess. H. 27cm.
Classical Period, ca. 360 BC. Probably from a funerary bust of the type commonly found at Cyrene and Attica, representing the Greek goddess Persephone or Demeter.
Apparently, a work by the hands of a master of the 4th century rendering Praxitelean charismatic softness.
Similar heads are in the collections of great museums e.g.the Museum of Fine Arts Boston and others.
