Description
Bust Cesare Augusto - 65 cm - Neoclassical - Marble - 20th century
Italy

Bust of the Caius Augustus, first Roman emperor (63 BC – AD 14) He ruled from 27 BC to AD 14. Skilfully carved by an eclectic sculptor from a Carrara marble block. The sculpture is in its original patina, untouched and never restored. In the lower part of the bust there is an hole, because it was supported by a base. This is clearly visible in photos. The armor features two Griffins facing each other and two Chimeras on the shoulder pads. A beautiful home decor item, very captivating as a whole and in its details.

Curiosity: in this sculpture, in the front, there are 3 holes, which joined by an imaginary line form a triangle, a seemingly esoteric hint.
