„5 minutes Sofia“ – Seuthes III
The bronze head of Seuthes III is part of a life-size statue of a full-grown man. Its expressive eyes are made of white stone (likely alabaster) and glass paste in light green, brown and black. Red glass paste is used to outline the lachrymal canals and cut-out copper render the eyelashes. The statue’s neglected hair and beard, the aquiline nose, as well as the wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes and the small wart on the left cheekbone reveal the portrait nature of the sculpture.
