Marble female head, possibly of Hygieia, found at Tegea, Arkadia
350-325 BC.

The youthful female head, with the wavy hair carried back, exudes divine beauty and grace. The theory, according to which it belonged to the statue of Hygieia, carved by the great sculptor Skopas, has been disputed. It is nevertheless one of the finest original works of the Late Classical period.
Height 0,285 m.
