An easily recognized style

Head of a wreathed, bearded man. Limestone from Arsos, ca 480-450 BC.

It is always interesting to see how certain types of statues show up again and again. Here we see a head of a male, which is looking very much like the one posted about a month ago.

Another interesting feature is the very faint red colour on the beard and curls, could it be traces of the original paint?
