Etruscan Terracotta male votive head, 3rd century B.C.

Of hollow form, depicted with youthful features, a mass of curls showing beneath the himation, with some red pigment remaining. This work would belong to the Etruscan classical period, when they began to develop works along the classical lines of those produced during the Imperial period. Thus, we can see a face with idealised features and a classical profile that would form the basis of the classical Roman portrait.
