Only the noblest Romans could have themselves immortalized as busts. There are many different busts of Augustus, but the prima porta bust is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful. This is a museum replica which is 17cm wide and 25cam high and is placed on a 3cm high noble marble base. The replica prima porta bust is made of fine alabaster. Alabaster is a natural product which dries harder than plaster and gives the bust even more fineness.

Prima porta bust
Originally, this monument was a tank statue a little more than 2m high. The statue was created during the lifetime of Augustus and was made in very elaborate work. Consequently, the statue is dated to the first century AD. Numerous details were engraved on his armor and these statues also changed the future of sculpting a little bit. The prima porta bust is named after its place of discovery, namely, as the name ""prima porta"" implies, in the suburb of Rome of the same name.
