This Julius Caesar bust is a solid Forton bust reproduction of the bust that resides in The Vatican. Taken from the actual marble bust it does have authentic markings as seen on the original marble.The Romans insisted on realism in statuary and this commanding statue of Julius Caesar shows us exactly how he looked. You will not find a bust of Julius Caesar with a more honest expression. Julius was probably the greatest genius that Rome ever produced, a consummate military leader, a statesman with great foresight, a scholar and a writer. Julius Caesar laid the foundation for a new order which resulted in the greatest of all ancient empires and a civilization that became our inheritance, one which is part of our everyday life now.
