    Costas my friends I'm sure that everyone like myself would love to see more of your creations more often. I know though that you are a busy man. That's a nicely done piece with a simple but very effective base.
    Merry Christmas to you and your girls :)

    Hi Costas
    Beautifully done my friend, I very much like the blue colour you have used and the shield if magnifico!
    Did you have any reference material to use or is he just an imaginary figure?
    Which ever, you have produced an another little beauty
    Long live the greeks!

    Cheers

    Jihn Hi its been a long time !!! The painting scheme comes from an illustration of a book from PERISKOPIO - Greek Publications , and represents an Athenian Marine, in the only valid ancient reference there is. So my painting its pretty close to reality , and to ancient sources
