The renowned “Winged Horses” are displayed in the Arms Room and are considered the Tarquinian masterpiece.
There is depicted a profile view of a pair of winged horses that are excited and restless. The magnificent equines are hitched to a chariot, of which only part of the shaft remains. The remainder of the chariot had once been sculpted on an accompanying slab which would have been placed to the right of the horses. This high relief is adorned with colour – red, brown, cream and once decorated the mutule of the facade on the left side of the Temple of the “Ara della Regina”. The temple itself dates back to the 4th century B. C. and was built upon the remains of a prior archaic temple. After that, the temple underwent many transformations and during the Middle Ages it was probably converted into a Church.
