Double Flute Player (detail) from the Tomb of the Leopards, Tarquinia, Italy c470 BC

The Tomb of the Leopards, now in ruins, still has many paintings on its wall which are bright, cheerful and depict the lifestyle of the Etruscan people. Small areas of the original painting have been damaged, exposing the bare wall on which the picture was painted. These areas are depicted in this interpretation by irregular patches of a fine mesh material, to represent the absence of colour.
