An Italian white marble bust of Christ, school of Torrigiano, early 16th Century.

Christ’s garment gathered in a band at the neck, the truncated bust encircled by the heads of cherubs. Once mounted high, perhaps as part of a tomb monument, it now stands on a marble base from the workshop of  Piranesi, circa 1765.
