Giving Good Greek Head

Head of Greek Wrestler, British Museum

I've had this incredibly beautiful antique Greek bronze head as my desktop image for a while. And stare in awe at it every time boot up. So I thought why not post it!

But I know nothing about it - and I've unsuccessfully surfed the net for ... it seems, ever. Particularly the British Museum's homepage.

So if anyone has any knowledge ... I'd love to hear.


  1. No knowledge, just admiration.

  2. same here! a beautifully sculpted thing - particularly the mouth and nose. have an friend who found something similar in Syria on a dig. not quite sure he managed to get it to australia!
