Greco-Roman Battle FriezeYour model is disabled. For more details go to Edit properties3D Model
A fragment of an architectural frieze sculpted in relief, depicting a battle scene. This fragment would have formed a portion of a much larger work decorating a monument or the entablature of a building.
Both soldiers wear short-cropped and belted tunics, with fluid drapery emphasizing the form of the body. One of the soldiers carries a large round shield with the arm strap modelled in careful detail, which crosses over the extended arm of his opponent, adding dynamism and depth to the scene, utilizing Greek sculptural conventions. The shield is modelled on the rom clipeus circular shield, similar to the Greek hoplite aspis.
Beside the figures is a knee height Cupid (Eros) watching the battle. The presence of the Cupid associates the battle scene with the emotional weight of power and glory, adding resonance to the martial scene. The fragment may have decorated the base of a victory column.
