bronze, h 45.7cm × w 21.0cm × d 13.0cm. More details

The sun is portrayed in the guise of a young man with an idealized muscular body, and a mask encircled by rays of light before his face. He is accompanied by a lion, the astrological symbol of the sun. This statuette may have been part of a spectacular table fountain, although it is questionable whether this lavish ornament was ever completed.
