This is the Signed original Gouache painting by Andrew Howat.

A dramatic colourful illustration for a magazine article on the Persian army of Xerxes. The disciplined and well-trained Spartan infantry were more than a match for Hippias' lightly armed Thessalian cavalry.

The inset shows a Spartan hoplite, or heavily armed soldier. His head, chest and legs are protected by armour, and his principal weapon is a spear. The device on the shield, a Greek capital L (lambda), stands for Lacadaemon, another name for Sparta.

Original artwork for illustration on pp8-9 of Look and Learn issue no 984 (17 January 1981).
