Head of an "Ethiopian" depicted in Hellenistic mode

Black Africans were considered distant and exotic and were termed 'Ethiopians' by the ancient Greeks when Greek artists formulated a distinct iconography for these peoples. This was well before the cosmopolitan Hellenistic period, when regular interaction with African realms like Egypt and Nubia had become the norm. (See the Timeline of Art History essay 

This beautiful head of an "Ethiopian" was created as an attachment for some luxurious object suited to a Hellenistic Greek milieu like that of Alexandria. A gold plug remains in the top of the head, and on the back twin loops were broken away. Possibly the head was part of a richly ornamented serving dish: for example, a head with a loop and ring decorates the rim next to the handle on one elaborate dish from Pompeii.


Our mission is to roast the best coffee and help our youth get exposure to inner-city arts programs. The perfect gift for coffee lovers and art lovers. All of our coffee comes in whole bean, ground drip, or espresso ground options.
