Achill in War Chariot

The Iliad tells about the Trojan War. However, its actual theme is about "Achilles’ Rage". Achilles started war only after long hesitation, scared the Trojans and killed – mainly as personal revenge – the Trojan giant Hector. A controversial hero, Achilles’ friend and enemy is deemed however as the greatest warrior of his time. "Achilles in War Chariot" is a representation of a contemporary Greek artist, using the sculptural language of archaic art. Horses and wheels are mobile, metallic chains represent bridle and Achilles’ weapon, a spear, is sharpened at both ends. Therefore, this sculpture has to be kept away from children. Antique green brass, patinated. Format: 24 x 14 x 12 cm.
