Not On View
Upper part of a statuette of an official. Since only the upper part of the statue is preserved, it is not entirely certain whether the owner was represented seated, as seems likely, or standing. The anonymous official wears a garment with short sleeves and a drawstring collar, tied with the ends showing. The nose, now damaged, was broad. The lips are carefully rendered with a sharply defined philtrum, thick lower lip, and carved edging.
By 1972: with Nicolaos Koutelakis, Geneva; purchased by the MFA from Mr. Koutelakis May 10, 1972.
