Artist's Description

Roman bust of Marcus Aurelius (AD 161 – 180), an Emperor who increased taxes to finance the enlarged army which he used to police foriegn countries (& keep the barbarians at bay along the empire’s long borders), thus increasing the financial problems in Rome itself. Not that I’m trying to draw any parallels, mind …

The bust is a combination of marble and alabaster, which adds the pearly sheen to his toga, It is thought to be a fairly accurate portrait of the emperor. Capitoline Museum, Rome.

Fujifilm S 3000.
