That's a cool pic but I recognize where the figure on the left came from and that kind of steals the magic for me.
Trojan Horse, from the 2004 "Troy" movie. Excellent piece of design work. Probably the only TH I've seen that actually looks like it was built from ships timbers.
Whoops, looks like I'm behind on "recent" pop culture. Sorry all.So, that crude looking thing was supposed to be a gift!? If I was the receiver I would say, in the words of an old buddy, "You're gift looks suspiciously like trash." Ha ha.
Never mind, TC - I'd not seen it either. So many films, so little time.
Not naming the book it actually came from which is also what the movie is based off of shows the great decline in our educational system though. Had it been a photo from the movie set, I would say its from the movie. But seeing as it is a drawing it is from the book. It is Illiad by the way.
Of all the people to assume don't know the Trojan horse comes from the Illiad, D&D nerds are probably the dumbest to pick. Try again.
Um, actually the Trojan Horse doesn't come from the Illiad. The Illiad ends with Patroclus' funereal games.The Trojan Horse was invented by Virgil in the Aenead, though he may have had access to Homer's third epic for inspiration.
