The Roman bust of a youth at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York typifies how the Romans often crafted decorative works by recreating the heads of well-known Greek sculptures on busts or rectangular herms. This carefully carved reinterpretation has been created in marble and rests upon a granite-style plinth.
