Etruscan society is not one acknowledged throughout history often. Yet, it is through the impact of these people from the first millennium BC that impacted much Roman culture and later artistic, architectural, and subjective traditions. In this essay, there is an exploration of how the Etruscan community has passed down through the thousands of years along with their influence on the aspects of portraiture, burial practices, and societal hierarchy. Furthermore, this work connects how Etruscan ideals were formed from Greek clout and their facial proportions, religious denominations, and architectural tendencies. All in all, the sway of the Etruscans extends further than solely their artistic influence, but it is through renditions recovered from their Italian towns that modern historians are able to discern information about their culture and see how certain patterns have been passed down from generation to generation.
