Statue of a Roman matron, 1st century BCE, Rome, marble. Musée du Cinquantenaire (Brussels, Belgium). Made with RealityCapture.
This statue represents the woman in an extremely traditional aspect, borrowed at the end of Hellenism and known as the type of pudicitia (modesty). It is a funeral portrait, originally placed on a tombeu along one of the great routes from Rome. The lower part of the face and the nose are restored.
