    About

    Produced by the Museum photographer Kevin Lovelock, this image shows The Meroe Head, also known as the Head of Augustus - an antiquity from ancient Sudan. Dated to the 27BC-25BC, it is a bronze head from an over-life-sized statue of the Roam emperor Augustus: the head is broken through the neck but is otherwise in an excellent state of preservation. The eyes are inlaid, with glass pupils set in metal rings, the irises of calcite. The eyebrows are plastically rendered. The emperor's head is turned to his right, with the pronounced twist to the neck typical of Hellenistic work. The hair falls on the brow in the divided and curving cut that marked most of Augustus's portraits as emperor. The facial planes are broad. The mouth is slightly downturned, a feature of late Hellenistic portraiture. The ears project markedly, the upper lobes bending forwards. The print forms part of a specially curated range by the photographers of the British Museum.
