Antoninus Pius (r. 138–61 A.D.), originally from southern Gaul, was the first of the Antonines, an adoptive dynasty that reflected the connections between wealthy provincial and Italian families.

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.
Head of a Grek General at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New Yorkmyminifactory.com
This powerful portrayal of a man of action belongs to a type popular in Roman times. One suggestion for his identity is the strategos (general) Phokion, pupil of Plato and one of the foremost Athenian statesmen of the fourth century B.C., but there is little evidence to support that theory. We do not know if the original statue was a contemporary portrait, like the famous fifth-century portrait of the Athenian statesman and general Perikles, or a posthumous work. It could even be a representation of a hero from the mythic past. he wears a Corinthian helmet pushed up and resting on the back of his head. The helmet is elaborately decorated in relief with griffins on the bowl and rams' head on the cheek pieces and his similar to a type worn by the goddess Athena. His eyes would have been inlaid in another material. The head has been worked for insertion into a statue.
Bust of Antinous du Capitole at The Réunion des Musées Nationaux, Parismyminifactory.com
The Capitoline 'Antinous' is a marble statue of a young nude male found at Hadrian's Villa, Tivoli, during the time when Conte Giuseppe Fede was undertaking the earliest concerted excavations there. It was bought before 1733 by Alessandro Cardinal Albani. To contemporaries it seemed to be the real attraction of his collection. The statue was bought by Pope Clement XII in 1733 and went on to form the nucleus of the Capitoline Museums, Rome, where it remains. The restored left leg and the left arm, with its unexpected rhetorical hand gesture, were provided by Pietro Bracci. In the 18th century it was considered to be one of the most beautiful Roman copies of a Greek statue in the world. It was then thought to represent Hadrian's lover Antinous owing to its fleshy face and physique and downturned look. It was part of the artistic loot taken to Paris under the terms of the Treaty of Tolentino (1797) and remained in Paris 1800-15, when it was returned to Rome after the fall of Napoleon.
Female Deity at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New Yorkmyminifactory.com
This fragment of a sculpture depicts a female deity, probably durga. This powerful representation was clearly a primary devotional icon, as is evident from the scale of the sculpture as well as its formal frontal stance. The figure's deified status is confirmed by indications that she once had multiple arms. She is likely a representation of the goddess Durga in her role as the slayer of the buffalo demon. In this context, she can be understood as Shiva's active female manifestation, or shakti, who rids the world of evil forces. The subtle volumetric articulation of the figure and the low-relief drapery typify the Prasat Andet style.
Sir Cedric Morris at the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts, Norwichmyminifactory.com
Welsh painter and horticulturist. He was a self-taught painter but attended the académies libres in Paris as a young man. He was a member of the art communities of Newlyn in Cornwall (1919–20), Paris (1921–6) and London (1926–39). Although he had experimented with abstraction c. 1922, he resigned from the society when it moved away from representation. Between 1937 and c.1975 Morris and Lett-Haines directed the distinctly non-academic East Anglian School of Painting and Drawing; in 1940 the school was moved to Morris's home at Benton End, Hadleigh, Suffolk, where he also cultivated a garden and bred irises.
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.
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.

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.
Leif Erikson Bust at the Leif Erikson Hall, Seattlemyminifactory.com
Leif Erikson or Leif Ericson was an explorer regarded as the first European to land in North America (excluding Greenland), nearly 500 years before Christopher Columbus.
