Vase with running figure.

Black-figure amphora.
By the Micali Group Painter.
Clay. 6th century BCE.

Tarquinia, National Archaeological Museum

Description:
The local motives most strongly sound mainly in the amphoras paintings, created, evidently, in Etruscan workshops; the fluent picture carries the traces of not fully successful imitation of high-quality patterns. The body of the black-figure amphora from Tarquinia is decorated with the figures of running youths, and the shoulders — with abstract ornamental design (pic. 101). The palmettes are drawn on the neck and the silhouettes of animals on the body of the amphora from the Hermitage collection made by Etruscan master Sirena of the Micali Group (5, p. 50).
