Although initially intended for the innovative, if prosaic, purpose of providing waterproof and fireproof cover for earlier thatch-roofed homes, fired clay tiles, in seventh- and sixth-century Etruria and Central Italy, combined with Etruscan love of adornment to create exceptional domestic and religious building decoration. Featuring statues and figured friezes of humans, animals, and mythological figures intended to convey the status of the owner or dedicator, the surviving terracotta roofs provide important insights into the architectural history of Etruria. With Symbols of Wealth and Power, Nancy A. Winter has provided a definitive overview of the evidence for these roofing elements that will enhance our knowledge of Etruscan---and more broadly, ancient---architecture.

Nancy A. Winter is an archaeologist and former librarian of the American School of Classical Studies, Athens. She is the author of Greek Architectural Terracottas: From the Prehistoric to the End of the Archaic Period (1993).

Book Description The University of Michigan Press, United States, 2009. Hardback. Condition: New. New.. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. This is the new definitive text on Etruscan terra-cottas. Although initially intended for the innovative (if prosaic) purpose of providing waterproof and fireproof cover for formerly thatch-roofed homes, fired clay tiles became, in 7th century Etruria and Central Italy, a critical element in domestic decoration. Featuring statues of humans and animals and mythological figures and inscriptions of political messages, the surviving tiles provide important insights into the architectural history of Etruria. With Symbols of Wealth and Power , Nancy Winter has provided a definitive catalogue of the evidence of these roofing tiles that will enhance our knowledge of Etrurian - and more broadly, ancient - architecture.
