Funeral statue of a noble etruscan, painted terra cota, 530 BCE. Nye Carlsberg Glyptotek (Copenhagen, Denmark). Made with Memento Beta (now ReMake) from AutoDesk.

The Etruscans were skilled at fashioning sculptures in clay, which was painted in bright colours. The statue of a distinguished Etruscan in a white toga with purple border may have been placed in a tomb pouring libation to a god in the underworld.
