The present pair of reliefs of Greek warriors is an interesting example of the Neo-classical admiration for the Ancient Greek culture. The large plumed helmets, clear cut profiles and pose of athletes in repose are drawn from Archaic Greek originals (Köln, op. cit.). The artist of these reliefs was also aware, and possibly a follower of, the great Danish master Thorvaldsen. In particular, Thorvaldsen's marble Jason of 1803-28 created an arhetype of the heroic nude, and, more closely still, the figure of Hector in Thorvaldsen's relief of Hector and Paris. The present two heros may represent the Trojan and Greek rivals Hector and Agamemnon.
