This is a bust of the great statesman, general, and Roman consul, Marcus Vipsanius Agrippa (64 BC – 12 BC). It is based off the marble bust discovered in the villa of Prince Camille Borghese in 1792, now residing in the Le Louvre Museum, Paris. The serious and chiseled face, looking off to the left, matches the effigies seen on ancient coins. The bust in Le Louvre Museum, although 2000 years old, is mostly likely a Roman copy of a long disappeared original.
The model shown here is a late 20th century study from Italy: a cast bust on circular plinth composed of powered marble composites and resin. It shows great detail and proportion and is covered with small, intentional chips, cracks, and surface grime which mimic antiquity. This bust of Agrippa will be perfect for anyone wanting a decorative piece that adds a classical touch.
CONDITION: Very good condition, bust created with intentional cracks and losses.
