    Not sure I have a fav work of art

    Did find this work of art I found the way it was constructed fascinating

    Done by drawing a single line starting at the tip of nose. The full face is more detailed at Pinterest and others but I am not going to download any more apps, sorry, I have enough

    1sr century Rome
    " a roman copy of a greek original"
    Why do people claim " a roman copy of a greek original" when no one has the supposed greek original?

    Do you have reason to doubt the statement or the research that preceded it?

    NO
    It just seems like an oft used phrase with only rare reference to the "original"
    so, absent the underlying proof, I am left to doubt.

    What circles do you travel in that that it is a oft-used phrase?

    The (so named from the rubble on the hill from whence she was rescued) "Esquiline Venus"
    No one knows who carved it
    No one knows who paid for it
    No one knows who modeled for it
    No one knows what it was originally called

    What we have is a well crafted piece of stone
    and imagination
    ---(a rose by any other name...)

    .......................................
    "traveling in circles" (until something looks familiar?)
    I've a love of archaeology and figurative sculpture----combine the 2 and I appreciate the encounter.
    I've also a love of kettle drums and french horns, and when a composer skillfully combines the 2, I appreciate the effect.
