The Spartan Warrior

Description:This is a bronze statue of an ancient greek warrior signed by E. Drouot (French, 1859–1945). Cast in a deep brown patina. It depicts a proud warrior on bended knee after a victory in battle. He salutes his country in exultation with his spear held high. The intricacies of his chainmail garment and breastplate in addition to the fine details of his helmet and shield down to the delicate patterns of his sandals ascending up to his shin greaves contribute to this piece's intense regal demeanor. It's definitelty one of a kind.
