Images of Hephaestion

Yesterday, I visited the library to look for information about a painting (click here for more info). Unfortunately, I drew a blank but while there I did happen to come across these images.

Do you recognise these deep, dark eyes?

How soft yet rough these lips must have been after so many years of fighting and following.

As you may have already realised, this is a bust of Hephaestion, which is part of the Prado Museum’s collection in Madrid. I don’t know the grounds on which the identification is made but I do particularly like his wavy hair, which reminds me of Alexander’s.
