The fragment of a head is related to the Greek tradition, it evokes the works of the Argive sculptor Polykleitos: the arrangement of the locks of hair recalls the works of this master.

Marble analyses conducted by Danielle Decrouez (Geneva, Museum of Natural History) and Karl Ramseyer (University of Bern, Institute of Geological Sciences) have shown that the relief was made of Pentelic marble. Click here for the detailed results.
