Roman Period Basalt Head - PF.2944
Price: $1200.00
This androgynous basalt head from Jordan smiles enigmatically with its subtly defined lips. It peers out at us with protruding eyes from underneath its heavy brows. The primitive, one could say, naive style in which the head was executed is manifest in the rendering of the facial features into stylized geometric patterns, the severity of which is somewhat reminiscent of archaic Greek kouros heads. It gazes ahead with sightless eyes, a poignant memento from a time long past, fashioned by hands which have long since stopped their toil. - (PF.2944)
