520 – 450 BC
Size : 11 cm high – 4¼ ins high
cf A similar sculpture in the Museo Nazionale Etruso, Chiusi, Italy
With special thanks to Judith Swadling of the British Museum for her assistance.
This finely detailed Kouros holds a phiale in his left hand whilst his right is raised in supplication to the Gods. The bronze loop attached to his head indicates that he was once hung from the branch of a tree, or nailed to a post, as a votive offering at a sacred site.
