Aeneas and his Father Fleeing Troy Unisex Short Sleeve T-shirt
Availability: In stock
There are very few stories in ancient mythology that would show the love between father and son with such an emotional impact as the story of Aeneas carrying his old father Anchises from the burning city of Troy. The image on this T-shirt shows the scene when Aeneas takes his father to his arms. According to Virgil's Aeneid, the old man didn't even want to go and was prepared to die in the ruined city. Divine omens needed to appear in order to change his mind.
Apart from Aeneas and Anchises, you can also see Aeneas' wife Kreusa (she didn't make it out of the city) and his little boy Ascanius (a.k.a. Iulus) who later accompanied his dad to Italy.
The image is a stylized version of the original painting by a French painter Simon Voulet. The original painting can be seen in San Diego Museum of Art.
