Augustus Caesar Bust, reduction inspired by the ancient statue of Prima Porta. This bronze bust depicts Augustus (born Gaius Octavius Thurinus) (63 BC - AD 14), first Emperor of the Roman Empire. As the founder of the Roman Principate, he consolidated an enduring legacy as one of the most effective and controversial leaders in human history.
The reign of Augustus initiated an era of relative peace known as the Pax Romana. The Roman world was largely free from large-scale wars for more than two centuries, despite continuous wars of imperial expansion on the Empire's frontiers and the short civil war during the Year of the Four Emperors (69 AD). Augustus dramatically enlarged the Empire by annexing the regions of Egypt, Dalmatia, Pannonia, Noricum, and Raetia, expanding possessions in Africa, and completing the long conquest of Hispania.
The stone socle of this bust can have veinings of different color and size which can alter the final appearance of the bust.
