Etruscan Beauty


Last Sunday, I fell in love with this handsome, big-bellied pot at an exhibition of Etruscan artefacts. I would have liked to have taken it home with me. Of course, the question is then what would you do with it? Seeing that it contains the ashes of a woman who died some 2,600 years ago, it would make quite a talking point on the living room table: Who was she? What was she like?

Hmm a little too creepy for my living room table. Wouldn't mind a Grayson Perry though!
