Styles & Periods
Etruscan Art

Etruscan civilization, seated on the Italian peninsula around 700 B.C., borrowed much of its culture from the Greeks before it. Alphabets and populations were shared with Greece, and a flowering of writing resulted. The Etruscans were powerful people, with a territory that extended from Naples to present-day northern Italy. Bronze tombs characterize Etruscan art. The first tombs were bronze urns with heads in the shape of the deceased and great mounds covering stone rooms. Later tombs, from the height of Etruscan civilization, were virtually simultaneous in date to the art of the Aegean. During this monumental period, figurative tombs in terracotta were made. Funerary chambers held murals and beautiful tombs with couples carved on the top. The colors of these murals are glorious and show figures of musicians, fisherman, flocks of birds and schools of fish. The tombs are indeed resplendent, and show the belief of the funerary site holding both body and soul. Etruscans were not only masters of the afterlife, but also of urban planning. Romans emulated their examples and learned how to build bridges and aqueducts from the Etruscans.

I like the White Galaxy Marker very much for writing on dark paper, and I have used it to cover another color when I needed to disguise a mistake or simply change effect. For example, I bought an ornament with name SCARLETT spelled on it and by covering the last 't', I was able to give this to someone with a cat named SCARLET. If color to be covered is a paint or other pen color, that can make the other color "stain" the white marker tip. This can be avoided if one is sure first color is dry before trying to cover it with white.
