Persian Warriors Puma, Nike, and Adidas



From the depths of my files comes a study based on a scene from antiquity juxtaposed with some modern accessories.  Originally this piece was made from glazed tiles painted in brillent colours depicting Persian warriors in procession. Today we often view the ancients as wearing tunics that are rough and simplistic   in basic drab colours with limited patterns.  However this is not the case, the ancient Persians  had a taste for distinctive clothing and accessories (we still keep that tradition). The sharp outfits and managed appearance were done with reason which is no different then today. The perfect curls found in mens' beards did not happen by magic, instead curling was accomplished by setting the beard and hair, least we forget the earrings as well. Some trends are timeless.
