Summary

This masterful portrait of Marcus Aurelius (reigned AD 161-180) captures the pensive temperament of the philosopher-emperor and author of the celebrated "Meditations," reflections on life and the ways of the gods. The smooth, softly modeled carving of the flesh contrasts markedly with the mass of thick, curling hair. The drooping eyelids and detached gaze suggest his contemplative nature.
