The Finnish cover for The Etruscan

Here's the original Finnish cover for Mika Waltari's The Etruscan/Turms, kuolematon from 1958. The artist is Björn Landström, one of the best illustrators working in Finland in the last fifty years. (I know there are differing opinions on this.) This cover is nicely drawn and the face is psychologically complex, but I'd like to see more action in this!
