The Etruscan Tomb of the Winged Demons. Sovana, Italy, discovered in 2005.

The information sign near the site reads:

This tomb could be considered an aedicula tomb type, characterized by a wide niche on the facade which is richly decorated with sculptures. On the tympanum a marine monster is carved out in high relief.
