Only REAL materials are used to construct these spolioi - authentic skins, repousséd/etched bronze and hand-stitched hides.
This is a splendid example of a 5th century B.C. aristocratic hoplite. Everything (including the helmet) is hand made and battle-worthy.

These images display an accurate attention to detail in both spolas construction and bronze and silver repoussé/engraving.
