Alabaster 'Boy with Thorn'
Boy with Thorn, also called Fedele or Spinario, is a Greco-Roman bronze sculpture of a boy withdrawing a thorn from the sole of his foot. The original sculpture was created around 101AD and since there has been many marble replicas of the piece.
This piece (afer the antiquity) would most likely have been a souvenir for gentlemen voyaging on the "grand tour" where they would tour europe and ancient sites and bring back artwork both original and replicas.
Alabaster is a mineral or rock that is soft, often used for carving. It has a white glittery shimmer to it.
