Ancient Roman Statue

Il Facchino ("The Porter") is one of the talking statues of Rome. The statue was created in around 1580 for the Jacopo del Conte for the Corporazione degli Acquaroli (although some sources say it was sculpted by Michelangelo).

It depicts a man wearing a cap and a sleeved shirt, carrying a barrel, who would take water from the Tiber to sell on the streets of Rome during the period before the Roman aqueducts were repaired.
