Athenian helmet on a base with ancient greek helmet and meandros on the plate 18cm
Athenian helmet: originated in ancient Greece and took its name from the city-state of Athens. It was a helmet made of bronze which in its later styles covered the entire head and neck, with slits for the eyes and mouth. A large curved projection protected the nape of the neck.Out of combat, a Greek hoplite would wear the helmet tipped upward for comfort.
Meandros: can be described as one of the most important symbols in Ancient Greece, because of its connotations with unity and infinity; the continuous interlocking lines and repeated motif reflects the fluid movement of the ocean wave, and thus the eternal flow of things, the meandering of life.
