Roman Marble Portrait Head of a Woman

Roman Marble Portrait Head of a Woman

An ancient Roman marble portrait head of a woman. Her oval face is framed by a voluminous, shoulder-length coiffure, styled in a series of even waves covering the ears and formed into two plaits which are loosely coiled to form a flat spiral at the nape of the neck.

Ca. early 3rd century AD.
Height: 13 1/2 in. (33 cm).

This hairstyle of the individual is typical of the Severan period. The coiffures of the empresses Julia Domna and Plautilla served as models.

Formerly in a New York private collection; previously in a Swiss private collection.
