The statue head depicts The Ultimate Simpleton portrait bust by famed artist Messerschmidt. His head is thrust forward in an exaggerated look of ignorance. His clenched mouth and tightened neck muscles demonstrate Messerschmidt's profound talent at capturing a human gesture. This statue reproduction is part of the Statue.com 3D Collection of highly collectible museum reproductions. The names they are known by now and the indication of the moods and characters they portray originated in an anonymous publication that appeared some ten years after his death. The statue head illustrates The Ultimate Simpleton.
