The image of a 2,500-year-old Amazon It has been discovered in an American museum. The drawing, embodied in a vessel, represents a female warrior mounted on a horse and armed with a lasso and an ax, fighting against an enemy Greek soldier, who is trying to avoid an attack from the Amazon by protecting himself with his shield. The bow is purple, just like the woman's shoes.
Adrienne Mayor has commented that It is the only image found from antiquity using a lasso in a battle. Mayor works in the department of Classical History at Stanford University.
David Saunders, a research associate in the Department of Antiquities at the J. Paul Getty Museum, said that there is much to investigate from the scene regarding how the female figure is perceived in ancient times and if there is any kind of seduction in the image. This vessel probably served as an ornament and could have been used to hold perfumes or jewelry.
The picture It was created in Athens between 480 and 450 BC.. and offers in some way, a subversive image about the traditional role of women in classical Greece.
