A selection of small-scale Roman sculptures and artifacts from the James Christie Shields Collection is now on exhibit in Gallery 203. In the exhibit are a number of bronzes, including a coin featuring the profile of Hadrian Sestertius, a mask of Dionysis, an exquisite and tiny (!) rearing horse, and a priest figure from Roman Britain. Among the marbles are a lovely head of a matron from Roman Egypt. Additionally, there is an impressive carved wood male figure, also from Roman Egypt.
Several of these works have not been on exhibit here before, so it is hoped that you will avail yourselves of the opportunity to see these treasures, small in scale but large in significance.
