Limited edition Frieze of Archers vase embellished with horizontal bands of polychrome tiles and solders with spears, quivers and bows with green, brown, yellow and white lacquer.
Known as the ¨immortals¨, the archers of the Persian royal guard transport us 2,500 years back in time, as recreated in this stunning vase. A High Porcelain limited edition evokes the splendour of this civilisation with masterful relief decoration and a carefully chosen colour palette. The Greek historian Herodotus recounts that the Persians taught their children only three things: horseback riding, archery and to tell the truth, which is why their soldiers were the best in the world. This piece is inspired by the Frieze of Archers which adorned the palace of Darius I (522-486 BC.) in Susa, showing the warriors of the royal guard, richly adorned with bracelets and earrings, embroidered tunics and colourful turbans.
