Cypriot limestone fragment sculpture of a man´s head, 700-600 B.C.

This sculpture fragment is a male head of Greek-Cypriot origin that possibly belonged to a complete sculpture. The young man has idealized features with curly hair and a headdress on his head as a crown. The unique geographical position of the island of Cyprus, situated in the centre of the eastern Mediterranean, makes it a natural point of connection between the cultures of the three continents: Europe, Asia and Africa. Furthermore, due to the continuous dominations that have taken place on the island, a dense network of commercial and cultural relations was created between the different civilizations that exercised their influence on the eastern shores of the Mediterranean.
