Vintage classic white plaster replica souvenir of maquette or student bust of moses

Various people have tried to help me with identifying this fellow (if you are sure you know him let me know, please!).

The consensus is that it is probably a 1970s-1980s souvenir replica of a famous student work or maquette of a Moses bust probably originally made during the renaissance period.

This guy is cranky and I first thought he might be Zeus about to unleash his wrath. But the curls, the headdress and beard are very suggestive of moses.

I love the roughness of the sculptural work - very expressionistic. He pushes out from the base mid emotional outburst.

The bust itself is 2" (5cm) across X 3" (7.5cm) long X 2" (5cm) deep. He is in perfect condition and so is the frame.

He is set in a handsome seep wooden pine box frame which is 4 1/2" (11.5cm) wide X 5 1/4" (13cm) long X 2" (5cm) deep. It has a small metal hanger at the back.

This is a unique and lovely piece which will sit nicely in a collection on the wall for those of us who love the classicism of another time.
