Spartan Greek Roman Sculpture Bronze Statue Figurine 36cm
Spartan Army Statue Warrior in Greek Ancient Mythology Bronze Art Sculpture by Veronese design
The Spartan army stood at the center of the Spartan state, whose citizens trained in the disciplines and honor of a warrior society. Subject to military drill from early manhood, the Spartans became one of the most feared military forces in the Greek world. At the height of Sparta's power – between the 6th and 4th centuries BC – it was commonly accepted by other Greeks that "one Spartan was worth several men of any other state". According to Thucydides, the famous moment of Spartan surrender on the island of Sphacteria, off Pylos, in 425 BC, was highly unexpected. He wrote that "it was the common perception at the time that Spartans would never lay down their weapons for any reason, be it hunger, or danger.

Material Real Bronze Metal/Cold Cast Resin
This collection of statues is breathtaking in the details achieved. All the pieces are made from a composite of Real Bronze Metal and Cold Cast Resin, and as can be seen the results are quite stunning. The bronze powder mixed in cold cast resin ensures a richer, more life-like presentation giving the illusion of soft material and highlighting the soft detail of any fabrics worn by the subject. This can be seen in detail in spite of being cast in a hard material.
The collector will appreciate the care taken with the additional items that help complete the sculpture. The hand-painted color accents and antique finish further add to the depth and richness of the artwork. A great deal of care is taken in producing and finishing each piece down to the felting of the base for the protection of furniture. These are relatively heavy for their size and are packed in sculptured polystyrene inner packing then packed in a gift presentation.
The figurines can be considered as “Tomorrow’s Antiques – Today.”
Simply put, this is very much a Class Act Quality Product.
