A neoclassical style metal bust of Greek philosopher Heraclitus that sits atop a black composition display pedestal. Done in the likeness of his portrait bust found at Herculaneum (which was buried under volcanic ash with the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD 79.) This piece is estimated to be from the 19th century, though it is uncertain. No notable damage; please inspect the listing photos closely for details on the condition of this piece.
This bust is approximately 11 inches tall, about 4.5 inches across the widest part of the bust, with a base about 3.25 inches in diameter.
