The Rider - 8 June 2013

The Rider - 8 June 2013
For this picture, taken at the British Museum, I can do no better than reproduce some of the text from the placard accompanying the statue.

Marble statue of a youth on horseback from Rome, perhaps 1st century AD. (Farnese Collection)

This sculpture appears to represent a Roman prince of the ruling Julio-Claudian Dynasty. It was restored in the 16th century by the Italian Renaissance architect and sculptor, Giacomo
della Porta.
