|ETRUSCAN BRONZE KOUROS
Wearing a loincloth. His hair, parted in the middle, falls to shoulder length. Both hands, extended once held an object.
The figure belongs to a certain group of Etruscan warriors, the short garment and the hands held parallel with the thumbs pointing upwards is typical of this type. In one case, the warrior holds a sword vertically. The motif originally comes from the Hethitic area.
