Painted terracotta sarcophagus of Seianti Hanunia Tlesnasa
 (голосов: 0)
Тhis is the sarcophagus of an Etruscan woman named Seianti Hanunia Tlesnasa. The Romans adopted many features of Etruscan culture, and their early sarcophagi and cinerary urns (containers for cremated remains) show strong Etruscan influence.

The deceased is depicted reclining upon a mattress and pillow, holding an open lidded mirror in her left hand and raising her right hand to adjust her cloak. She wears a chiton (tunic), a purple-bordered cloak, and jewellery comprising a tiara, earrings, a necklace, bracelets and finger-rings.

Scientific testing of the teeth of the body inside the sarcophagus indicates that she was probably about 50 to 55 years old at the time of her death. The rather youthful portrait is typical of the idealized representation found in the Hellenistic period of Etruscan art, when it was heavily influenced by the international culture of the Greek world.
