Description
Cameos have been around a long time, dating to their invention during the age of Alexander the Great. A cameo is a sculpture in miniature, originally intended to represent an event or a person of importance. In the Roman era large-scale cameos played a particular role, depicting import people of the Empire. - (FJ.6148)
