Art Description

Painting: Oil on Canvas.

I was inspired by the historical tragedy of the 300 Spartans that died in The Battle of Thermopylae. Other artists have portrayed the Spartan Soldier in the nude, representing the vulnerability of the numeric odds they stood against or with a leather thong. I felt more compelled to emphasize that when a soldier dies, he dies alone. For further information and reference on the 300 Spartan Battle, follow this link:
