  1. Theodoros A Fixture

    Sculpted by the greek master sculptor and modeller Ioannis Papoulakos, as a commemorative bust for the 80th year since the greek involment to the wwII and was presented at the 2nd ARTA model scale competition.

    I painted this exceptional bust using artistic oils. Depicts in scale ~1/12 an "evzon" private, as he was looking during the wwII, wearing his woollen khaki battledress . On the head wears his characteristic cap (farion, greek "φάριον") with its long silk made tassel.

    [ Since the establishment of the regular hellenic army, men coming from the mountainous mainland of Greece, formed the so called "evzonic" battalions of the light infantry and they supposed to be the successors of the Achilleus' Myrmidones elite band. Ferocious, militant, fearless, famous for their assaults using their bayonette and the war cry "AERA !", they took part in all the conflicts and wars of the Hellenic Army since then. They are still serving as the Presidential Guard, with mostly ceremonial duties at the grecoturkish border line, the Presidential palace and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier ]
