marble statue

Classical-era statue (Roman I think) inside the Kunsthistorisches (Art History) Museum. Can’t remember who this is supposed to portray – got to start writing this stuff down (I did take this back in 2009)!

It sits directly opposite of Naturhistorisches Museum, which its mirror image and identical in exterior. Both buildings were opened to the public in 1889 and built to house the Habsburg’s vast collection.
