Valiant Miniature Kit# 9884 - Amazon Warrior. Throughout the history of classical Greece there were persistent legends of a race of female warriors who lived to the NE, somewhere on the shores of the Black Sea. There is no known historical basis for the myth; Yet many legends to of Greek Heroes fighting these Amazons, and some like Theseus, are said to have married Amazon-Warrior Queens. One feature which persists in the legends is the claim that the fierce women warriors removed the right breast surgically, so as to pull war-bows more easily. Our model is taken from the style of the 4th Century B.C. carving on the Temple of Artemis at Ephesus.
