Bust of military commander Marcus Agrippa, bronzeBust of military commander Marcus Agrippa, bronze
Marcus Vipsanius Agrippa
born 63 BC or 64 BC. In Arpinum or in Dalmatia; d. 12 BC in Campania
Markus Agrippa was a Roman general and politician, friend and son-in-law of Augustus and ancestor of the emperors Caligula and Nero.
The bust in bronze is made after an original dating from the 1st century AD, which can today be seen at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. The known Roman bust on black base with its bronze patina is a very special antique highlight on any desk or shelf.
The head of the Roman bust consists of finely ground Alabaster plaster. Alabaster is a high-quality natural material and not comparable to building plaster. Alabaster gypsum is very fine, dries out very hard and is therefore used in the areas of arts and heritage preservation/restoration.
