An early sand casting sculpture of what appears to be a Roman or Etruscan Soldier. I say appears because the Shield is of the earliest square shape before the popular round or oblong became the standard. Many of the other accouterments seem to be correct with standards we assume we know about. The polished sculptures in most museums don't show the buttocks that were not protected by the uniform. Is this how it really was??? It stands 12" x 4' x 1" and weighs about 3 lbs and I date it around 750-680 BC. This is Museum Quality but I don't need the write off by donating to a museum. Buyer pays all import duties and/or fees.
