The palaces of the Achaemenid kings were often decorated with representations of long lines of courtiers and soldiers, dressed for a festive occasion: although they carry arms, they have no shields or helmets.
The soldiers are often called "Immortals" or "Apple Bearers", although "Companions" appears to have been their real name
In Persepolis, they are carefully sculpted out of stone. In Susa, the soldiers were made from glazed brick, which gives us an idea of the colors.
We offer many custom color finishes like Silver Leaf, Bronze, Bronze with Patina, Aged stone, Pewter, Copper
All finishes are Faux finish, each piece of art is hand made and no two (2) pieces are the same. The color shown by camera and on the digital display may look different in real life. Lighting, surrounding colors, time of day, electronic display etc will change true life colors.
