my met favorite

The tension!
Doesn't he look like he's about to spew a bunch of profanities?
The plaque said that it's the head of a piper or floutist - and I guess the body and instrument disappeared a while ago.
But I'm quite sure I like the sculpture much better like this.
Who knows, they may have had it all wrong and he might have been a Thracian garbage collector.
Also, I believe that this is the rock that Coco was wishing to throw into the reflecting pool. He's already holding his breath, after all.
