Statuette

Place of execution unknown
Roman, 1st century AD
Bronze, full fusion
7,7 cm
From Empúries (Alt Empordà)
MEV 8666

The Museu Episcopal de Vic has a large collection of small full fusion (solid) bronze sculptures that were part of the domestic furnishings of the Roman 'domus' and 'villae'. Some of these figurines of deities had a cultural purpose, whereas others were for decorative purposes only. This statuette represents a slave standing upright wearing the new comedy mask and in a superior-looking pose. He's dressed in a short-sleeved tunic and a cloak over his left shoulder.
