King Leonidas of Sparta. 2007
Bronze sculpture, 20 x 8
Original sculpture and photos are copyright 2007, 2008, and 2009 by the Artist DiAnne L. Cooper.
I was commissioned to create a sculpture for The Leonidas Expeditions.
to fund an archeological expedition to Greece 2010.
The purpose of the expedition is to find the site of the battlefield of Thermopylae.
This sculpture is on permanent display at the Hellenic Museum, Chicago, Illinois.
The link to Nick Bonavas's site was sent to me by one of the members of the expedition.
The Archeological Institute of America honored the sculpture by purchasing a copy for the Gala to honor Harrison Ford.
Here it is on their website: http://www.archaeological.org/gala/statue.php
The copy has been flopped over. He uses it as his banner on Nikosart.com
and as a tattoo design.
