Shield Picture

This photo was taken at the beautiful museum of Ancient Olympia. It is a Spartan shield with a mythological Gorgon on it, Ancient Greeks frequently used mythological monsters on their shields to create fear to their opponents.

It is my tribute for the Battle of Thermopylae that took place on August of 480 bc.

No need to say more except:
