The Trojan Horse is an iconic and well-known aspect of literature, being the final blow that inevitably brought down the legendary city of Troy. And now, you can have your own recreation of this mythic icon in this impressive little Trojan Horse Statue. The Trojan Horse is referenced in the Odyssey, a major Greek poem that is attributed to the Greek poet and writer, Homer, and is also detailed more fully in Virgils poem, the Aeneid. The story is one of deception that hails back to the Trojan War, when Greeks attacked to Troy but could not breech its walls. As a ruse, they crafted this great horse statue and hid their fleet and forces, leaving only an elite group of warriors, hidden within. The Trojans sought to claim the horse as a trophy for their own, and wheeled the giant statue into their city, only to be taken unaware when the Greek clambered out and started the assault that would burn Troy to the ground. This impressive statue depicts the Trojan Horse in all its glory, depicting the moment when either the Greeks climbed into the horse, or the moment when the Greeks climbed out to assault the city of Troy. The statue is crafted from cold cast bronze, which is a resin that is mixed with powdered bronze, giving it a stunning bronze luster. The statue is also hand painted in areas, to further enhance its already impressive look. The statue stands approximately 10.75 inches tall. There is no denying the uncanny look of The Trojan Horse Statue, and that is what makes it such a great gift or accessory to give to anyone you might know who loves epic Greek Poems, mythology, and history.
