This marble headless bust was made in the 1st century AD in Rome, Italy.
The sculpture depicts a young man dressed in a chiton, with his right arm holding the folds of his toga on his left shoulder. This position gives a dynamic drape and creates movement.
The chiton is the main garment worn in Ancient Greece by men, women and children. The chiton is a kind of long shirt or tunic formed by a piece of fabric folded upwards and sewn sideways. This garment is worn in a short form because the long form is reserved for high-ranking people during ceremonies.
Archaeological remains such as sculptures, ceramics and mosaics have given many indications of clothing from the Greco-Roman period.
The ancient costumes worn by the Greeks have the same base, i.e. a piece 2 metres wide by 3 metres long which differs in the way the fabric is draped or sewn.
