The son of a sea nymph and a king, Achilles was a hero in Greek mythology and the protagonist of The Iliad, by Homer. This Greek Hero Achilleus in the Trojan War makes a stunning addition to any heroic or ancient military display. Crafted from cold cast bronze, this Trojan War statue is hand-painted to bring out every detail of this brash figure. Achilleus leans forward, ready to strike with his long spear. He wears Greek armor with a plumed helmet that displays lions on the cheekpieces. His Boeotian shield offers protection while allowing him to strike through the cut-outs. Due to a feud with Agamemnon, Achilleus and his forces withdrew from battle. He returned to avenge the death of his friend Patroclus by Hector. This Greek Hero Achilleus in the Trojan War makes a fabulous gift by itself or creates a thrilling scene when paired with Trojan Prince Hector in the Trojan War (WU-1592), sold separately.
