Etruscan Nenfro Relief of a Winged God - 600 BC

A fragment of Etruscan architecture depicting a winged god, circa 6th century BC.

Carved from a thick block of nenfro, a grey volcanic rock from Etruria. The deity is shown running - almost dancing - across the stone, the muscular legs with pronounced calves, the ankles with miniature wings. The torso with a set of large, feathered wings, spread wide, a cable pattern border below, striated bands to the sides.

Cf. 61.11.17 at the Metropolitan Museum.

A wonderful example of Archaic art.
