Head of a Youth: the other man on the mantel





A curious reader emailed me a question after reading my last post,  having noticed the other objet on the mantel in my 'header' photograph, asking: "Can you tell us about the other bust on the mantel?" Well, yes. I can. It was a gift from Mr. Husband about 7 years ago, and is from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, being a bronze reproduction of a first-century Roman cast bronze head. The original now resides in the Israel Museum.  You can have him for your very own by clicking here.
