Lot Essay

The distinctive elongated pyriform head, the flat straight nose and the substantial size of this head resemble other figures which have been attributed to the hand of the 'Copenhagen Sculptor' by Getz-Gentle, cf. P. Getz-Preziosi, Sculptors of the Cyclades, Michigan, 1987, pp. 88-90, pls 24-25; and Personal Styles in Early Cycladic Sculpture, London, 2001, pp. 71-74, pls 62-63.
