The magnificent art work is done in raised high relief. I traveled to the Vatican many years ago to take close up pictures of this statue in person so that no detail would be missed.
This Roman breast plate is designed after the famous Augustus of Prima Porta statue. A majestic example of Imperial Roman statuary. The human proportions are based on the Doryphorus - a statue by Polykleitos portraying the ideal proportions of an Athenian athlete.The breastplate scenes depict the Roman victory over the Parthians. These were previously lost by Crassus in 53 BCE and Mark Antony in 36 BCE. The canine is perhaps the wolf of Romulus. To the right and left of the central figures are women representing conquered Roman provinces perhaps Gaul (with boar and dragon trumpet) on the viewers right and Spain on the left (which may also represent client tribes in Germany and the east). At the top Caelus unfolds the canopy of the heavens.
To the left Apollo drives the chariot of the Sun. To the right Aurora (the dawn) holds her urn with Luna (the Moon) holding a torch. The bottom central figure reclining is Mother Earth (Terra Mater) holding a cornucopia and to her right Diana rides a stag and to her left Apollo rides a griffin. I can make and add other armor pieces to this as well including the back muscled plate and the two shoulder guards.I can also make and attach the pertuges work which are the leather or cloth straps with fringe that hang off of the arms and waist areas of the armor. These prices cover the making and attaching everything together, so that it can all be worn together.
