Italian Marble Bust of Lucius Aurelius Verus

This stunning bust has been sculpted out of a type of green and cream marble found in Italy. Based on the other busts from antiquity and the Renaissance, we believe this to be Lucius Aurelius Verus. His uniform, which includes the ribbon tied breastplate indicates his status as Commander and Emperor. It is embellished with the Gogon Medusa. The proportions of the bust are very true to life. The bust rests upon a round, black marble base.

CONDITION: Good condition commensurate with age and use. Minor cracks and small openings to veins as seen in photos. Some minor chips and abrasions.

H=31 1/2, W=28, D=13 1/2
