Witness the Spectacle of Ancient Rome with the Gladiator Bust
The Gladiator does not just involve Russell Crowe in his armour in the hit movie about an ancient Roman fighter. It is about life and death in an arena and about gladiators who were mostly slaves, criminals, prisoners, and unfortunate aristocrats that gambled and fought for their lives for the sake of survival. They were the subject of a spectacle that was deemed as an organized competition that doubled as entertainment for Roman aristocrats, visiting officials, or simply to distract the masses from political upheavals.
Gladiators mainly had a short sword and round shield but they also brandished a variety of weapons depending on the class that they belonged to. Equally alluring as Crowe in the film, this Gladiator Bust cast in fibreglass with a roman stone finish wears an armour with detailed elements like the embossed breastplate. It is balanced by a sturdy base and would fit well as a decorative piece in gardens, restaurants, and even educational facilities.
