King Alexander's portrait


Do you know him? No? Well I think you do.
This is how Alexander the Great probably looked like, if we take in serious consideration the statues and the gold coins of that time (and the historical testimonies too), when he was enthroned in Macedonia at the age of 20. His blond hair were cut short close to the neck, his face was shaved, he had a characteristic mouth just like the whole family, his forehead was a little bit bloated over his eyebrows, his eyes were grey.

Note: This portrait was published at the first issue of the Experiment magazine (Year 1, Νο 1 December 1993), and it was part of the article: "Alexander the Great, The way towards immortality" by Aris Terzopoulos.
