Archaic Etruscan Bronze Kore
The figure stands in a frontal pose with her hands outstretched to the sides. Her feet are close together and she wears delicate pointed shoes, typical of Etruscan bronzes. Her beautiful face wears the “Archaic Smile” typical of Greek sculptures of the time. The piece is of extremely high quality. Intact.
