The description of the piece (seriously) is as follows:



This bust is a classic portrayal of strength and nobility.  Thought you would like to see it.

It really is at the Getty ...

... and of course, we all know that it really is the Black Panther ...

A proud strong Blackman.  His facial features alone shows how powerful he was a human being in the 1700 and most important as Blackmen today thru out the world we have the strength and power within ourselves.

True.

... oh, for clarification, for anyone interested in seeing the original bust, it is actually part of the Getty Museum's regular collection.
