Statue of a Greek Youth

This standing Greek youth is nude and his left thigh (the leg is lost) appears to advance forward. The neck and shoulders are smoothly modeled. His hair is plaited and falls behind the head. Many similar statues (or head of these statues) were found in Chios, Samos, and Rhodes; they comprise a homogenous group in the Archaic art of Ionia (in modern-day Western Anatolia). Archaic Period, circa 550-540 BCE. From Cyzicus, Erdek, in modern-day Turkey. (Museum of Archaeology, Istanbul, Turkey).
