Carved marble bust of a crying baby, dressed in a toga, on a red marble socle.

This is a compelling bust and the subtleties are not apparent in the photograph. If you run your hand across the top of his head you can feel the soft spot. And if you look at it long enough, it becomes a very old man. This object is not for everyone, but it's an amazing sculpture! RM
