HEROES FROM BEFORE





For their deeds with the sward, mind or sorcery, epic heroes from times long passed have conquered a place in our memories. They keep living through the stories we tell by the fire in stormy nights and through art. This is an ode to the art of the classic period.

Graças aos seus feitos com a espada, poder na arte da feitiçaria ou pelos actos invulgares alcançados apenas através da força das suas mentes poderosas, os herois de tempos imemoriais, conquistaram um lugar nas nossas memórias. Continuam a viver nas histórias que contamos à lareira em noites frias e tempestuosas e através da arte.
Este trabalho é uma ode à arte clássica.

It's called the CLASSIC period for a reason! What a great time with great art. I say it was a great time like I was there, but I enjoy looking back at what has been done. Learning from the masters has always been the best way to grow as an artist.

Francisco Martins disse...

Hi chelsea,
Indeed..it was a crucial period that defined art as we know it in our days.

Take care
