Greek Terracotta Figure of an African, 2nd-1st Century BC

Interesting figure of a kneeling man with black African features.

The naked man leans forward a little and looks thoughtful. He shows a furrowed brow, receding hairline and puffed up hair.

Nice anatomic detail of the upper body. Right arm missing, a garment covers the partially preserved left.
Superb modeling. Old collection's tag on the back.

Fragmentary, superbly modeled and rare.

H. 6.2 cm (2.4 in), H. with stand 8.8 cm (3.5 in)

Swiss private collection Zug, acquired in 1995. Self-published in 2012.
