Etruscan sarcophagus, 250-10 BCE, Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek (Copenhagen, Denmark). Made with Memento Beta (now ReMake) from AutoDesk.

A well-preserved head shows the woman’s white skin and reddish hair. Her coiffure was usually gathered in a bun at the nape or above her forehead. Etruscan women often wear earrings, sometimes armbands and necklaces, which were painted yellow to represent gold.
