Statue of a philosopher

The statue is about life sized and is made of marble. The subject may be Plutarch or Plato. The sculpture dates from the third century BC. The facial details and clothing contrast with the Kouroi of Kleobis and Biton. The sculptor is unknown. Unknown produced a lot of work in those days. 😄

Sculpture Saturday is a challenge hosted by Susan Kelly at No Fixed Plans.
