    Brilliant sculpt an paint job.
    Just the right amount of movement gives a real sense of life.
    The dagger looks a bit forced though and adds little to the overall quality of what is probably the best Roman bust on the market.
    Cheers

    Extraordinary, beautiful sculpture, has lots of movement, as if he were turning right. Perfect paint job. The tones of the face, reds, and metals are fabulous.
    The team Ebroin-Franco Mochi, works very well. I like it.

    What a brilliant piece!

    It's actually a generic Roman officer from any period up to about the early 4th century AD, not just a cavalry officer from 180 BC. He could also represent a praetorian officer with no modifications necessary.

    Although it might indeed look "forced", the position of the dagger falls well within the range of variation. It's being worn tucked through the armour belt, in Greek parazonium style. You sometimes even see them casually holding the top of the scabbard and guard in one hand in front of their belly, with the dagger hilt poking out horizontally between their fingers.

    Officers habitually carried a dagger as a sidearm with this sort of plate armour. Interestingly, whenever daggers are mentioned by Roman writers being actually used it's always this officer's sidearm that's being described. For example, Tacitus mentions a praetorian centurion acting as a bodyguard using his dagger on a raging mob trying to attack his VIP. These are also the sort of weapons that were used to whack Julius Caesar on the Ides of March.

    Leave the dagger...take the cannoli.

    Most impressive sculpt, quite tempting even though it's not my usual period of interest.
