The Greeks are Coming

This looks to be a Spartan soldier in the front with a huge Spartan helmet in the background with the Parthenon in the back left and maybe Nike, goddess of victory on the far left. Very nice. As most of us know the Spartans were the badasses of the ancient Greek world. Just for a little taste: they were only considered men when they murdered a slave and weren't caught doing it. Be sure to click through to see the details.

Ain't it though? I wish I knew the artist but I found this on a message board with no artist listed.

The woman on the side don't are Aphrodite? Ares lover... make much sense...

Livia Indica said...

Hmm, you could be right. It could very possibly be Ares in front and Aphrodite on the left.
