Apollo of Veii.  Ca. 510-500 BC.  Terra cotta.  Height: nearly 6 feet.          Unlike the Greeks, the Etruscans were less interested in intellectual problems of proportion or understanding how the human body works than in producing an immediate impact on the viewer.  The famous terra cotta statue of Apollo found in 1916 at Veii, with its striding stance and formalized smile, is unquestionably related to Archaic Greek models.   Tebenna
