Marble statuette of a male figure playing a musical instrument, lyre or harp.
Keros, Early Cycladic II period (Keros - Syros culture, 2800 - 2300 B.C.).

It belongs to the group of the musicians, i.e. male figures who play musical instruments. Its three dimensional development, a feature common in this category, is a very early achievement of the Cycladic sculpture.
