Etruscan Bone Mirror Handles
Metadata[+] Show full item record
"Figured carvings in ivory and bone form a small, precious group in the repertory of Etruscan art. Chronologically, they fall into two groups: the Archaic and the Late Classical and Hellenistic. Among the latter are handles for bronze mirrors, usually made of bone. Six examples and a fragment of a seventh have been known, all in Italy and most of them in Florence. The appearance of another handle, almost complete and very well preserved, is thus an important addition to our knowledge of Late Etruscan art. Said to have been found at Yuki, the handle is now in the Museum of Art and Archaeology of the University of Missouri-Columbia."--First paragraph.
