The "Persian war veteran"
Inspired by the Getty Bronze and it's shipmate, with a twist.
From Marathon to Thermopoli, the Persian war lasted over 10 years, so the veterans were a tad grizzled when they returned home.
He is leather tough, hard as nails, a tad paranoid, and has a minimalist painting of Aphroditi on the inside of his shield (copied from a classic greek mirror).
......And, his enemies were wondering why he was grinning at them during battle.....

Lets end the tyranny of the "art" of alienation and get back to classic beauty!
"I believe that art has a moral responsibility, that it must pursue something higher than itself. Art must be a part of life. It must exist in the domain of the common man. It must be an enriching, ennobling and vital partner in the public pursuit of civilization. It should be a majestic presence in everyday life just as it was in the past".(If I emulate the masters, it is out of respect.)-Rod Patterson
Let us strive for:“The ability to have faith; to sustain hope; to feel the transforming power of beauty; and the revel in the innocence of the world around us”.
