Achvizr is an Etruscan Goddess or spirit Who is probably the personification of some positive quality like health or vigor.  She's depicted on several Etruscan engraved mirrors, usually in the company of the love Goddess Turan, in scenes invoking blessings.  I've depicted Her here as a Goddess of health or well-being, with the wings characteristic of quite a few Etruscan figures to signify a connection with spirit.  I've put Her in colors associated in the modern mind with health and the medical profession.  Her name is written at the bottom, in letters the Etruscans adapted from the Greek, and reading right to left, A CH V I Z R.

The medium is colored (permanent) india inks, using white gouache as a resist, so that the outlines are the negative space, like in a linocut or woodcut.  The border is of course in Tuscan red.
