Antique sculpted terracotta bust of Pallas Athena


In the manner of the Antique examples, late 19th Century, the helmet modelled with a lizard in relief pushed back, the chiton with scrollwork to the decolletage.

h 72 x w 55 x d 30 cm

This bust bears similarities to the ‘Athena Giustiniani’ a Roman marble of the late 5th – early 4th Century BC, particularly in the scrollwork to the drapery, but it would appear to be the sculptor’s own version of what was a generic subject, the portrayal of Athena/Minerva with her helmet pushed back atop her head.
