This sculpted fragment of a king's face shows characters that allow us to date it to around 1200 in south-west France: a trace of a pearled crown with cabochons, slightly ovoid eyes with wrinkled upper eyelids, visible forehead wrinkles and a beard treatment in fine parallel striae. Carved in coarse-grained limestone, the stone was formerly restored and consolidated by a silicate-based treatment.
