The Shield of Achilles
In the battle between the great warrior Achilles and Prince Hector of Troy, Achilles' shield is described by Homer as a series of concentric circles starting with the center of the shield and working outward as the land, sea, air and constellations followed by cities with people and events including a court case, wedding and military siege followed by a field being ploughed, a king's estate being harvested, a vinyard being picked, a herd of straight-horned cattle with a bull being attacked by lions and the herdsman fending it off, a sheep farm, men and women dancing and finally a great storm at sea. The final design is based upon the artistic interpretation of Angelo Monticelli from Le Costume Ancien ou Monderne in 1820.
