The Amazons.

 

The immortal myth of warrior women riding fiery horses, wielding bows, vigorous legs amid a storm, threatening eyes on delicate faces.

 

Beautiful, young, resolute, ready to defend their independence with swords and arrows.

 

The archetype of the Amazons, women warriors inferior to no man, wishes to encourage a reflection on contemporary society and women’s roles. Homer described them as “equal to men”, a sign of respect in the patriarchal society of ancient Greece.
