Bone Engraved with Man Having Greek Features

Post  Admin on Fri Oct 16, 2009 1:59 pm



The small piece of bone is engraved in the shape of a man having Greek features, wearing short garments, and holding a basket in his hand.

Figures were portrayed harmoniously at the time, even though the body could be depicted in an Egyptian style while the features were depicted in a Greek style.

The artist was skillful in the way he engraved his work on the bone, accurately displaying the features.
The material was often chosen by the artists of the time because it was readily available.
