Ares--FOR SALE by templeofapollon Ares--FOR SALE by templeofapollon
ORGINAL FOR SALE 50 dollars plus shipping

Oil painting of Ares. He right hand is held in a halting/averting gesture with a swans feather between his fingers. He carries a sheild with a scyle on it wrapped with grape vines (inspired both by the Orphic Hymn to Ares which calls on Dionysos and Aphrodite both and mentions Ares as one who gives weapons to Demeter...the scythe was used as a weapon by Perseus in some representations in killing Medusa and it is used to reap wheat...hence why it is there.
