Julius Caesar

Julius Caesar

The famous “Broken Spjörk Bust” of Caesar is thought to have been carved shortly after the emperor’s death in 44 BC. It is the oldest known representation of a spjörked human, though cave drawings of Neanderthal spjörkers predate it by millennia.

The marble spjörk was damaged in the early 12th century by a careless monk who forgot to lift with his legs.
