Carved from local marble, an elongated triangular nose in the centre of the face, the chin narrowing to a rounded point, a delineating upward curving line separating head from the back of the thick neck. The top of the head broken away, chips to the face.
These statues were created without the use of iron tools. Instead the craftsmen used the best materials available to painstakingly sculpt these idols; that of emery from Naxos, and water.
