Funerary Statue of a Youth

Attica, Greece

c.380 BC

The deeply carved eyes, with brows and eyelids in high relief, the angular nose, the bow-shaped mouth, and the soft musculature of this youth typify the fourth-century B.C. ideal of male beauty. His mantle, attached at one shoulder, suggests that he was a servant or slave. Once part of a larger grave monument, this figure might have accompanied his master in a composition similar to the stele seen to the right.
