Etruscan Antefix with Bearded Satyr

$4,500.00

Circa 6th Century BC

Beige terracotta architectural antefix with frontal depiction in high relief of a bearded satyr. His large almond-shaped eyes and archaic smile are framed by a wealth of hair above and a semi-circular beard below. Much of the vibrant original red paint for the face and brown for the hair and beard remains. At the back is a partial arch which would have attached to the roof tile. A bold example with great visual presence, probably from Tarquinia.
