4 thoughts on “Wordless Wednesday– Tomb of the Leopards

    1. I found it on Wikipedia. Here’s the first few lines. An Etruscan burial chamber so called for the confronted leopards painted above a banquet scene. The tomb is located within the Necropolis of Monterozzi, near Tarquinia, Lazio, Italy.

      It also says this about the piece: The scene is usually taken to represent the deceased’s funerary banquet, or a family meal that would be held on the anniversary of his death. It is presented as a celebration of life, while Etruscan banquet scenes in earlier tombs have a more somber character.


  1. There’s something so fascinating bordering on wonder and beauty when seeing something like this that has lasted centuries. I don’t know all the symbolism but to see a peek into life that long ago is exciting.
