Terracotta head of a man with a round hairstyle which covers the ears. The hair with impressed circles and remains of white color.
The man shows wide almond-shaped eyes with neatly marked cosmetic lines and eyebrows. The prominent nose with pieced nostrils, the lips pressed to a gentle smile.
Elaborate style with much use of the modeling tool. The piece constitutes a fragment of figurine or a sculptor's model.
For a related head, cf. inv. no. E.07619 in the Royal Museums of Art and History, Brussels.
