Framed Metal Art. Head of Buchephalus. A Parmakelis creation. Alexander the Great. Greece
Alexander the Great: I’ve spent almost a year now researching him, his family, his enemies (who turned allies), his horse, his motivations, his mental state, his death, his art, his monuments and homes… and a lot more.
Complex, intriguing, fascinating . . . with many “no way” moments.
Alexander’s horse is legendary. I couldn’t get a piece of the horse, but I did get a framed head of Buchephalus created by a famous Greek sculptor Yiannis Parmakelis. Mr. Parmakelis has global appeal with numerous exhibitions in Greece, Europe and the Americas.
Don’t forget to look up Buchephalus. He was quite a horse. He was a massive black stallion and Alexander’s favorite. A black coat with a large white star on his brow. 12-year old Alexander won the horse in a wager with his father, Philip II of Macedon.
Metal artwork. Fabric covered frame. Easel back.
From a collector in Athens. In perfect condition.
