Renaissance bust of a boy


Fine Italian renaissance marble bust of a boy. The curly headed youth, carved from white marble, looks to his right and slightly downwards with a slightly open mouth. He is wearing an off-the-shoulder tunic in red marble with white and grey mottling. The bust is raised on a fluted red marble plinth. [A differently carved small piece (possibly antique) is affixed to the back of his head.]
