The hair falling in strands across his forehead showing his barred teeth
Size: 24cm high, 20cm deep, 17cm wide – 9½ ins high, 8 ins deep, 6¾ ins wide
cf: illus. 33b, Pagan Celtic Britain, Anne Ross, shows a head in relief on a stone roundel from Wallsend, Northumberland with a similar hairstyle
This head perhaps symbolizes the forced emergence of the Celts from the ambiguous world of their ancestors where the otherworld was as accessible as this one into the ordered, straight edged, rational and disciplined world of the Romans.
