Trajan: Venice

1222161548Sarah Jenkins (velvethadrian), 2016

Though I think a starker contrast between the marble and the wall would have been ideal, there is something very human about this bust of the Roman Emperor Trajan. Despite the heaviness of the stone, it almost seems as if he’s turning to answer a question rather than being frozen in the emotive melancholy tilt that so many ancient sculptures have in the museum.
