Description

The subject of the cast is an elderly drunk woman, holding a wineskin in her arms, lying on the ground, with her legs curled up, with her torso raised and her head thrown back. Her wrinkled face, desperate and almost grotesque, is characterized by an open mouth and a blank stare. Her body shows the digging of the bones, the sagging and limp skin. She lacks her right arm and both feet. The original, from which the cast derives, is located in the Glyptothek in Munich. The original sculpture is in marble, a copy of the early 1st century AD. of an original of the late 3rd century. B.C. Found in 1620 during the restoration works of the church of S. Agnese fuori le mura, on the Nomentana.
