RENEGADES Hippolyta Postcard
  • RENEGADES Hippolyta Postcard

    15cm x 21cm postcard from the RENEGADES series. 


    RENEGADES is an outdoor art installation at the Hellenic Museum. A commission with renowned Spanish street artists PichiAvo, it consists of three outdoor, free-standing portraits, each depicting a woman from ancient Greek history or mythology.


    Long believed to be a myth, Amazons were a tribe of warrior women who were the archenemies of the ancient Greeks. Ancient accounts describe them as fierce and fearless in battle, a stark contrast to the cloistered and dependent Greek women. Hippolyta, an Amazonian queen, figures predominantly in the stories of Herakles and Theseus, both of which end with her death.
