    1. PATRICIAN CARRYING BUSTS Or how to carry your family tree in two hands

    2. WHAT IS IT ??? • Life size statue of a Roman Patrician carrying two busts (heads). • Finished somewhere between 10BC and the start of the first half of the first century AD.

    3. THE BUSTS • Both realistic (= Veristic). • Both stop just below the neck (= sign of Late Republican period). • They are two old men and represent the patricians ancestors. • They are both held close to indicate the close relationship to the patrician carrying them.

    4. BOTH BUSTS RIGHT HAND BUST • Later than the other; this one c.40-30BC • Probably the patrician’s father • Short hair that is combed forward towards the forehead • Groves around mouth • Tight thin mouth and lips • A very severe look (HIS) LEFT HAND BUST • Style of c.50BC • Probably of the man’s grandfather • Balding head with wrinkles under the man’s neck

    5. SO WHAT IS THIS VERISTIC STYLE??? • VERISTIC STYLE = true, ‘warts and all’. • This can be seen by the wrinkles and the creases shown on the faces: • Especially on the brow, • At the corners of the eyes, • At the sides of the mouth. • Drapery hangs in irregular folds.

    6. SOME LAST POINTS… • Great attention to detail, ie: bone structure, skin, hair and eyes. • The original masks were made of wax as it was tradition to have wax busts (death masks) of deceased patrician’s in their households. • Only patrician’s could have portrait busts made. • These busts were therefore a status symbols.
