Bronze head of warrior or God.
14 September 2023

Bronze life size head of Greek, Roman, Warrior or God? Was cut off a life size statue. The statue was said to have come from a large estate that had multiple statues of Warrior's. Gods and animals somewhere in Massachusetts. This particular statue was said to have had a ball and chain weapon in one hand. All the statues were ordered to be destroyed after the death of the owners of the estate. They were brought to my Grandfather's Scrap Iron yard in Providence Rhode Island for that order to be carried out. My Grandfather saved this head and the arm that once had the ball and chain weapon. My Uncle has the arm.


Almost 11" wide, across nose. Almost 12" high, from base of neck to top of head. 24 1/2 " around head, in middle, around nose.

Hi Delia.
My Grandmother had the
Head mounted to a wood base some years back in order to display it.
She had it drilled and bolted on. I removed the base so you can see the bottom and inside.
Thank you. Mark.
