O Genie, this art loving supplicant humbly requests a small bit of your vast knowledge..
Recently I bought this at an antique show, though it itself is not an antique, I am assuming it is a replica of a relief from somewhere. The seller knew nothing about this piece, not even its name (her family refers to it as sexyman), and I'd really like to call it by its (his) real name and learn something about it.
Can you tell me anything about this piece (the original), where it is from, the name, the artist...anything.
Prompted by a few suggestions, I tried doing some (...more, 'cuz I already did some searches) google image searches and with the title "high relief man's torso" I found this... http://lh3.ggpht.com/-Vl06896ICQM/RzLGCLnQKeI/AAAAAAAAEGs/MpFrcG5d1qw/P1050705.JPGhttp://www.flickr.com/photos/franca-german-artist/5437946703/
Sorry I can't seem to get the actual photo to upload.
