A beautifully sculpted marble bust of the famous Roman Emperor Lusias Versus dating from the last quarter of the 20th century.
He is wearing a flowing toga with a fibulae or broach holding it in place, on a matching elegant pedestal in the form of a classical ancient Greek Doric column. The column has a fluted body with an plain and undecorated column capitals, it tapers faintly larger in circumference toward the base.
The attention to detail throughout the piece is second to none and the figure is extremely lifelike.
In excellent condition, please see photos for confirmation.
