The Etruscans

The studio of Gli Etruschi (The Etruscans)was by owned master ceramicist, Ivo De Santis. Just like his ancestors over two thousand years ago this mid 20th century artist was well known for his bold ceramic creations.
 We just acquired two large examples from the 1960s, the bull is just over 15 inches from head to tail and the elephant almost 12 inches in length.
Although priced separately the wise collector would surely purchase them as a pair for their Ipanema penthouse or Mulholland Drive Eichler, after all they've been together for 50 years.
