Notes

Summary:
Schematic treatment of hair links the head with archaic predecessors. Severe, vacant look of face is reminiscent of the Kritios Boy (Athens,Acropolis 698 ), which must be close in date. The strong tilt of the head to the right with a corresponding shift in the torso fragment is characteristic of the emerging Early Classical style. The often cited association with Persian debris is uncertain, hence there is no sure terminus ante quem. Some scholars see a Peloponnesian quality in the work, usually described as a heaviness of form, but there is no hard evidence to link this statue with any known sculptor.
