Etruscan Winged horses, Tarquinia

Salvete Omnes,
again using the vast collections at Wiki Commons I would like to share with you some photos of the Etruscan Winged horses from Tarquinia, Italy.

First, the link to a fine article written by Giovanna Bagnasco Giani from the University of Milano. Also another article, in Italian, on the  analysis of discovered horse remains in the Etruscan 'Demoni Azzurri'( 'Blue Demons')tomb in Tarquinia.
nota bene the horses of the Demoni Azzurri tomb -
