This is the head of a Nuragic statue representing a boxer, these statues have been dated recently around 1050-850 bc, making them the oldest in Europe.

Their height is around 2-2,5 meters depending on the statue, they represent warriors, archers, boxers and last years a new type of statue has been found, a group of twins with a peculiar type of shield.
The site investigated is around 75000 m^2, but according to Gaetano Ranieri, the geophysicist who's studying it thanks to the georadar. it could be as big as 300000 m^2
The statues have been found over a huge numbers of tombs, the exact number is still not known but more than a hundred of those have been discovered now.
Inside one of the tombs, an Egyptian scarab dated to 1350-1050 bc, has been found.

The statues have been violently destroyed around the IVth century bc but it's unknown what happened exactly.
