There is no mistaking this figure for anything other than what he is. After all, the warriors of Sparta have become an iconic bunch in todays age. This Spartan Warrior With Spear and Hoplite Shield Statue pays homage to this ancient warrior. Sparta was an ancient Greek kingdom, and it was known not only for its great warriors, but also its great military prowess, a reputation well-earned, as much of Sparta was ruled with military discipline and practice. This statue depicts what could historically be an accurate Spartan, as the warrior stands tall in his sculpted bronze breastplate. In one hand, the warrior holds a shield that features the letter lambda, for Lacedaemon, another term for Sparta, while the other holds a spear, which was known as a doru. At the Spartans side is a xiphos, or a short sword, for close combat, while the classic plumed helm adorns the Spartans head. Armored sandals and greaves keep the Spartans legs safe. This warrior stands atop a simple base, to better put all of the focus on this impressive figure from history. This statue is crafted from cold cast bronze, which is a variation of cold cast resin that is mixed with powdered bronze to make the statue appear more like cast bronze metal. It is also selectively hand painted, to better enhance its detailing as well as its metallic coloration and finish. This historic figurine stands approximately 14.375 inches tall. Historians and Greek enthusiasts will find that this Spartan Warrior with Spear and Hoplite Shield Statue makes for a great collectible, as well as a perfect gift for those who share an interest in the history of the Lacedaemon warrior.
