Roman bust of Homer

This Roman bust of Homer was sculpted in the 2nd century AD. It is believed to be a copy of a Greek bust of Homer sculpted some 100-400 years earlier.

The all-white eyes seem ghastly in these ancient marbles, but remember in the old days these were painted with life-like colors, so it would have looked more like a figure in a modern wax museum. After all, even blind people have pupils.
