Amazing miniature statues of the King of Sparta, Leonidas
Leonidas (c. 530-480 B.C.) was a king of the city-state of Sparta from about 490 B.C. until his death at the Battle of Thermopylae against the Persian army in 480 B.C. Although Leonidas lost the battle, his death at Thermopylae was seen as a heroic sacrifice because he sent most of his army away when he realized that the Persians had outmaneuvered him. Three hundred of his fellow Spartans stayed with him to fight and die. Almost everything that is known about Leonidas comes from the work of the Greek historian Herodotus (c. 484-c. 425 B.C.).
The master-craftsmanship, hand-painted accents, and antique finishing showcased in this collection of statues boasts remarkable detail from every angle. As with most Cold Cast Bronze Resin* statues, every piece, although delicately designed, feels solid and heavier than expected when held. Each statue comes carefully packaged in a custom sculptured polystyrene inner packing to ensure safe world-wide shipping!
Whether you are looking for a statement décor piece, expanding a personal altar, or just adding to your collection, look no further!
*Cold Cast Bronze Resin: A cold cast bronze statue is created during the process of combining real powdered bronze metal with resin. The statue is then cast into a replica mould, and the resulting piece is breathed into life. This meticulous process allows for cold cast bronze statues to flaunt a higher-quality detail than it’s solid bronze counterpart, as well as an exceptional price difference!
