the etruscan collection's story
dating back to 768BCE, the etruscans were a ceaselessly driven civilization located throughout maremma, italy (modern day tuscany, italy). during their existence they were known as the cultural and economic leaders of the western mediterranean sea.
when death succumbed an etruscan of high stature, their remains were placed in tombs or graves surrounded by their fellow deceased aristocratic family. these tombs or graves were highly decorated with uniquely ornamented objects which were to accompany the deceased on their journey to the after life.
these hand-made works of metals and jewels are caitlin's representation of specific etruscan burial artifacts which she found particularly intriguing. each item depicted was discovered in the early 1900s and can now be seen at the national archaeological museum in florence, italy.
