Notes

Summary:
Head of young man with blond hair, as indicated by the well-preserved traces of yellow paint on hair when found. Thick mop of hair ending in rows of curls in front, braided in back. Somewhat heavy, fleshy features. Head tilted noticeably to right, which corresponds with the fragment of lower torso usually associated with it. Both show elements of early classical pose with weight on left side of body. A proven archaeological context of Persian debris has not been upheld, although the extremely fresh condition of the surface has led most scholars to continue to date this piece prior to the Persian destruction of 480 B.C.
