Etruscan Funerary urn (number 10) for a male, 250-10 BCE, Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek (Copenhagen, Denmark). Made with Memento Beta (now ReMake) from AutoDesk.

On several heads, the original dark red colour representing the menĀ“s skin has survived. Short hair and clean-shaven faces were the custom of the time - only one head is shown wearing a beard, perhaps a relic from the customs of older times surviving in an area where Roman influence was still not dominant.
