History inspires us but if we add your talent this gives a superb scene. Was Zenobia this pretty ? I must read more about her and Palmyra and not only the books I have treating of it's recent destruction.

She is described as "a staunch beauty" in the "Historia Augusta", written at the time of Diocletian and Constantine I. However much that has been written about her is rather apocryphal and even contemporary accounts are wildly contradictory... fertile ground for the imagination!

Wow! Love all the detail and the overall composition is magnificent. As with a previous picture of yours I enjoyed and commented upon I really enjoyed the history you shared. I love to know what inspired you. Thank you for sharing!

This is really cinematic, and beautifully done, Joe! Wow! History seems to repeat itself with smaller armies kicking the butts of larger ones..

Wonderful quality to the textures, the differences between cloth and stone, etc, are easy to appreciate, great posing too, very believable figures

Your new image looks fantastic once again! I wonder why men always have to bow so humbly to these female despots (or vis-vera)? Oh yes, because otherwise their heads will roll!

Fantastic scene, and posing and expression, Joe. They are just so natural. Her expression, lol, it's perfect... "what is this peasant doing here?" Wonderful work :)
