Leonidas (c. 530-480 B.C.) was a king of the city-state of Sparta from about 490 B.C. until his death at the Battle of Thermopylae against the Persian army in 480 B.C. Although Leonidas lost the battle, his death at Thermopylae was seen as a heroic sacrifice because he sent most of his army away when he realized that the Persians had outmaneuvered him. Three hundred of his fellow Spartans stayed with him to fight and die.
This great 1/4th scale statue pays homage to the bravery and sacrifice of King Leonidas and his 300 Spartans.
Sculpted by Andrey Bogomolov, Ehren Bienert, and Arahom Radjah this fantastic Leonidas polystone statue edition displays his shield resting on the ground.
