Alexander

The Alexander Sarcophagus is a late 4th century BC Hellenistic stone sarcophagus adorned with bas-relief carvings of Alexander the Great. It is considered the outstanding holding of the Istanbul Archaeology Museum. I visited the museum 3 years ago.

This is amazing! It’s like he’s riding his horse right out of the paint and coming to life! I think the reds in the background really complement the gold of Alexander and his horse! I really love this style!
