Artist Unknown
English: Bust of Gaius Caligula, emperor 37-41 AD. The emperor wears a beard as a sign of mourning for the death of his sister Drusilla in 38 AD. The smooth aspect and sensible surface of the representation are reactions against the academism of the end of the reign of Tiberius. Marble, ca. 39-40 AD, found in Thrace.

What is Schools Wikipedia?

Wikipedia for Schools was collected by SOS Children's Villages. SOS Children's Villages believes education is an important part of a child's life. That's why we ensure they receive nursery care as well as high-quality primary and secondary education. When they leave school, we support the children in our care as they progress to vocational training or higher education. Have you heard about child sponsorship? Visit our web site to find out.
