Well, hate to be the bringer of bad news but this isn't my work and unfortunately the man who did this particular piece, "Peter Connelly," just recently passed away about 2 or 3 years ago. He was a very famous ancient warfare historian, author, and artist.
Damn, Peter Connolly was awesome! Have always loved his artwork, books and level of detail and research. Got a few of his books back when I was 13-14 years old and a few others over the years. Greece and Rome At War has been a great resource for some of my paintings.
You are right! A TITAN and a good man! Also I grow up with his works, there is something in the meaning of life I'm still unable to deal with: The lost of such persons...I cannot accept he's no more on this world, people as him or Angus should live forever...the years pass but the I'm still unable to deal with the feeling of the lost.
Sadly he was just working on the new book,which was devoted to the campaigns of Julius Caesar.I read somewhere that this was his dream for a long time,but for a long time he also could not find anyone who would publish it...which is something I cannot understant-Peter Connolly and problems with finding someone who would publish his magnificent works,like if there was something better?
