Perikles (Pericles, 495-429 BC) was the leader of Athens from 460 until 430 BC during the age of Classical art and culture. He was responsible for helping to develop the first democracy in Western culture and its greatest monument, the Acropolis with Parthenon. This portrait sculpture is reproduced after the original by Kresilas. On both sides of the bust area, there are indentations after the original where arms would have been attached. Ancient sculpture often was assembled as pieces of marble so that it could be repurposed as necessary.
Statue bust is hand made here in the USA from interior / exterior resin, white with gray wash finish, 23"H x 11"W x 14"D.
