Late 18th Century Pair Porcelain Busts depicting the Greek figures Homer and Artemis, both featuring firing marks.

The bust of Homer is based on a much-restored Roman copy of a Hellenistic original. It depicts the poet as a mature bearded man, with creased forehead, wearing a fillet and tunic. The blank eyes allude to Homer’s blindness.

Artemis is the Greek Goddess of the hunt, nature and childbirth.
