Terracota votive head, Etruria, 350-300 BC
  This fragment of a life-size stone statue (perhaps an architectural element) shows the head of an unidentified young man with very curly hair and a short curly beard. The damaged nose, upper lip and eyes do not detract from the strong presence intended by the sculptor. Palmyra, Syria, 150-250 AD.
