The Scythian


“The Scythian” was painted in Photoshop for a Historical project featuring a Scythian Warrior, approximately 5th c. B.C. While most modern depictions portray fully armored individuals wearing scaled cuirasses and modified Greek armor, this image was inspired in part by bare chested warriors depicted on the Gold Scythian pectoral, or neck piece, from a royal kurgan in Tolstaya MogilaPokrov, Ukraine, dated to the second half of the 4th century BC.
