„Battle of the Amazons“

from the gallery of darkrubymoon

This oil painting is intended to depict a battle scene between the fabled Amazon warrior women and the ancient Greeks. There is much evidence to suggest that these warrior women were more than mere myth as much archeological evidence supports that such a group may have lived and modern genetic test has even found where their ancestors may live today. I did make some attempt at making the clothing historically accurate but as few and vastly different iconography shows them wearing very different forms of clothes, I did a combination of the most likely outfit based on their proximity to the ancient Greeks.
