Stand of the Spartans by ChrisRawlins Stand of the Spartans by ChrisRawlins
Oracle's prophesy
Sparta's life for the death of a king
Between mountain and sea
Hold defenders of Greece

Sparta, Athens and Thebes
Send their warriors to meet destiny
Persian blood on the beach
Only death brings defeat

The Persian horde is come
Stand of the Spartans

I love that poem.... partly because I love Greek history and have read of all of the wars.... and know quite a bit about the Persian wars.
Amazing picture as well. Well done. :)

Very well done on transporting the emotions of the moment, especially given that there is not much seen of the faces under the helmets!

I always imagined them as very, very calm. They knew how good they were. The Spartans prided themselves on few words and no hasty actions. Colors and strength of imaging very good, as per usual.
