Head, USA at UEA, Norwichmyminifactory.com
This interesting, larger than life, weathered stone head is a contemporary piece that is on display at UEA, Norwich. This piece depicts an adrogynous face with its eyes closed. The cracked stone and multitonal texture adds a sense of decay to the piece, turning it more into an unearthed archaological relic than perhaps an art piece. Nonetheless this solemn piece has the air of being a death maskand can be seen at the Sainsbury's Art Centre in its permanent collection.

Livia at The Réunion des Musées Nationaux, Parismyminifactory.com
This portrait of Livia, wife of Augustus, belongs to the tradition of Roman Republican portraiture and illustrates the classicizing style that triumphed during the reign of Augustus. This official portrait served the propaganda of the essentially monarchist regime installed during the late first century BC under cover of a restoration of the Republic (59-27 BC). Judging by the material - basanite - it dates from Octavian's victory over Mark Anthony and Cleopatra at Actium in 31 BC.
Statue of Osorkon 1st at The Louvre, Parismyminifactory.com
The son of Shoshenq I and his chief consort, Karomat A, Osorkon I was the second king of Egypt's 22nd Dynasty and ruled around 922 BC – 887 BC. He succeeded his father Shoshenq I who probably died within a year of his successful 923 BC campaign against the kingdoms of Israel and Judah. Osorkon I's reign is known for many temple building projects and was a long and prosperous period of Egypt's History. His highest known date is a "Year 33 Second Heb Sed" inscription found on the bandage of Nakhtefmut's Mummy which held a bracellet inscribed with Osorkon I's praenomen: Sekhemkheperre. This date can only belong to Osorkon I since no other early Dynasty 22 king ruled for close to 30 years until the time of Osorkon II. Other mummy linens which belong to his reign include three separate bandages dating to his Regnal Years 11, 12, and 23 on the mummy of Khonsmaakheru in Berlin. The bandages are anonymously dated but definitely belong to his reign because Khonsmaakheru wore leather bands that contained a menat-tabnaming Osorkon I. Secondly, no other king who ruled around Osorkon I's reign had a 23rd Regnal Year including Shoshenq I who died just before the beginning of his Year 22.

Albert Einstein at The V&A, Londonmyminifactory.com
In 1933 Albert Einstein (1879-1955) had just fled Nazi Germany and was staying briefly in a refugee camp in Britain. Epstein said later that 'his glance contained a mixture of the humane, the humorous, and the profound. This was a combination that delighted me. He resembled the ageing Rembrandt.' The rough surface of the bronze recalls some of Rodin's busts. This bronze sculpture was executed by Jacob Epstein (1880-1959) in 1933, lent by The Tate for the V&A.
