This is a plaster bust of the Roman God Apollo handcrafted by the artists of Galleria Romanelli in Florence. The piece is a copy of a fragment of the Apollo Belvedere, one of the most celebrated sculptures of Antiquity, which is hosted in the Vatican Museums and dates to the 2nd century AD. During the Renaissance, the sculpture was seen as the utmost expression of ideal beauty, which is replicated here in this figure, with the face turned towards the left in a dynamic movement.
