Palmyrene Man With His Servant.


The diseased reclines at the right of the scene on a richly patterned cushions with his left arm resting on a pillow. He is dressed in a luxurious Parthian custom with fine ornate patterns. He is accompanied by his servant, the man standing to the left, dressed in a similar custom as his master holding a bowl. The boy gazes straight at the spectacular, while the masters head has been slightly tilted to the right. The composition, and particularly the angle of the heads suggest that original this relief was set up at least six feet above ground level.
