Hello, m’Romans[ gratuities hat ].
Spanish artist Cesares de Roma has created a hyperrealistic silicone figure of the famous Roman emperor Nero. Based on pre-existing failures and classical literary generators, the historic accuracy cannot sway the internet’s feelings that the recreation looks like someone who would impel you to read his incredibly in-depth Star Wars devotee conjecture.
Besides showing off how Nero had a literal neckbeard, the video goes in-depth into the process behind originating the bust and a little bit of historic background as well.
In addition to Nero, de Roma has also depicted modern-day versions of Julius Caesar and Augustus, and hopes on compiling more Roman emperors in the future. We hope they don’t looking half as Twitter troll-ish as Nero.
