Gallery Hangouts: Front Face of a Stela

March 23, 2021

What do you think of when you think of a leader? Is it their elaborate regalia or a powerful pose? Here at the Cleveland Museum of Art, we have many portraits of leaders, including the Front Face of a Stela (Free-standing Stone with Relief) and George Washington at Princeton. Whether they are military, or political, or religious, these portraits show the subjects' status and authority.
