Description

This striking reproduction was modeled on a bronze cista (Etruscan, 4th century B.C.), or covered box, in The Met Collection, a characteristic Etruscan form. This nude youth, doing an arching back-bend, makes a perfect handle for the cista lid. Such attachments were skillfully composed to fit their purpose, and can stand alone as works of art.

Etruscan civilization, established in the region of Italy now known as Tuscany, reached the height of its power during the seventh and sixth centuries B.C. Although the Etruscans spoke and wrote their own language, they left behind no comprehensive written history, and much of what is known about them comes from the remains of their material culture that were preserved in tombs.
