Etruscan Italy Gallery
Small gold bird with line-work in granulation. Hollow sheet hammered over half-bird form and joined around profile. Lines of granulation outline major feather-divisions; also in looping lines each side of neck and line over head. Partially crushed. Feet (if ever any) torn away so it now stands on a tiny open cylinder.
