Artefact No. 13: Etruscan Terracotta Bust
The region of Etruria (central Italy today) yielded an elaborate culture that is now known, among other things, for bringing the Greek influence to Ancient Rome. The Etruscans were well known for their freestanding terracotta sculpture, of which this is an outstanding example. This bust of a female with watchful eyes is framed with waves of hair and a crown of petals.
