Adorable Roman Marble Head of Cherub

Ancient Rome, ca. 1st to 3rd century CE. An incredibly fine, carved marble head of a cherub. The sculptor of this piece truly knew how to bring stone to life! Just look at this angelic being's sensuous, fleshy cheeks, his naturalistically rendered nose and lips, those meticulously delineated flowing tresses, and most of all, that tranquil, soft expression. This small but mighty piece is beyond impressive! Custom stand. Size: head itself measures 1.25" L x 1.375" W x 1.375" H (3.2 cm x 3.5 cm x 3.5 cm); Size: 2.5" L x 2.125" W x 2.5" H (6.4 cm x 5.4 cm x 6.4 cm) with stand

Condition: A fragment, but oh what a fragment! The head is in near choice condition.
