This one is the more "consistent" of the traditional mystic relics. At this time there are four objects designed as "The Holy Lance" (also known as the "Spear of Destiny", "Lance of Longinus" and other names). As model I've used the one exposed in Hofburg, Wien (Austria). Other two lances are more controversial and about the fourth (preserved in Vatican City) we have no more than a couple of rough sketches by a french voyager from the XIX century.
The "Lance of Power" has been desired by so many kings and statesmen though centuries up to the the II World War and, probably, again in the contemporary age.
It is a strange thing: this should be a modern and materialistic age but still so many peoples look for possession of this (and more) relic. No modern and illuministic conceptions and knowledges affects the mind of some peoples, especially if statesmen?!?
Too much materialism is not good, but likewise wrong thing when mythos and mysticism prevail reality too. All we have to think about.
My personal journey through mythos, however, will be continued in future. There are so many other legends and relics to investigate in the history of human king all around the world...

wonderful composition,the colors are superb. as for the story very well,and for the statesmen. you know when you happen to come into that special circle if i may call it that, you better lay off the sheepskin and put on the dark cloak otherwise they tear your limbs off. i dont think that i see a change to the positive during my actual incarnation. maybe in the next one. meanwhile all i can do is trying to be as correct as posiible although sometimes i fail. very strong posting altogether it made me think.
