I have wanted a replica of the Pergamon head for years and finally bought one from here https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/7889570 ... ve_3&frs=1. It was a little bigger than I had an anticipated, but it really is excellent quality and I would recommend it to anyone who wants a copy. They do smaller ones and it is an exact museum replica.

From some angles, the head shows traces of boyish freshness, but the cheeks have a hint of puffiness like maybe too much alcohol, but the deep creases on the forehead show the strain and worry of hard campaigning and leadership.
