♞The Winged Horses of Tarquinia, Etruscan high relief (end of 5th - early 4th century BCE). This terracotta slab adorned the pediment of an Etruscan temple. It shows a refined technique of execution with a meticulous rendering of details (tails, manes, feathers of the wings) and the precise reproduction of rich accoutrement. The artist who modeled it shows a direct knowledge of the contemporary Greek sculpture that probably was a reference model.
