Three heads of women
This so-called Shape VII oinochoe, with its tall cylindrical neck, is an Etruscan invention popular at Caere (modern Cerveteri) in Southern Etruria. The use of three large profile female heads is typical and is often attributed to the Populonia Painter, an artist active at the end of the fourth century B.C.
