Torso of a Cuirassed Statue - Reproduction

This marble reproduction was cast from a mold of an original Roman sculpture in the Antiquities Collection at the Getty Villa dated from about 81-96 A.D. Only the torso and one arm survived of this over life-size portrait statue of a man wearing full military parade armor. Cuirassed statues were a popular form of sculpture used to honor emperors, their male relatives, victorious generals, and military heroes. The breastplate is a basic rendition of the human masculature and it is not decorated. This lack of detail indicates the statue did not represent the emperor or his family but a general.
