Title:   Mold Fragments for Head of Archaic Bronze Statue

Description:   As mended, there are five fragments, giving much of both sides of the face, most of the mouth, lower part of the nose, one eye, one ear and half of the other, and part of the wavy locks above the brows.
Preserved pieces are made up of two thick and one thin outer layer of coarse clay. That the head was actually poured is shown by clinging particles of bronze and by the back color of the inner clay.
Scale rather under life-size.
