    There seems to be doubt as to who the sculpture represents. Please do some research before posting!

    It says “possible” above and it *is* a possible bust of Henry VIII as a child, with royal provenance leading to Henry VII. What more do you want, Aimee?

    it is also possible that it is the renown hairless child of hamburg ‘baldy kleinschmidt’ (circa 1452).
