Product description

A statue of Alexander could have been this votive offering in the sanctuary, the head of which alone was found in the vicinity of the Erechtheion on the Acropolis in 1886. The statue may have been dedicated there during the years following Alexander’s visit to Athens after the pivotal battle of Chaironeia in 339 BC. Conjecture has arisen as to whether it is original work of the late Classical years or a copy from the Roman period. The head radiates intelligence with soulful eyes set deep in their sockets; his hair forms unruly curls with the characteristic off-centre parting and cowlick on the forehead -"anastoli"; the lips are partialy open and the facial complexion is virtually flawless. All these features are distinctive characteristics of Alexander. The head has been compared with copies of works attributed to the sculptor Leochares, such as the Apollo Belvedere in the Vatican, and associated with this sculptor, who created the gold and ivory portrait statues of the Macedonian kings that adorned the Philippeion in Olympia.
