Product Description

"It makes no difference what men think of war... War endures. As well ask men what they think of stone. War was always here. Before man was, war waited for him. The ultimate trade awaiting its ultimate practitioner."
—Cormac McCarthy, Blood Meridian

This pendant is an extremely accurate 3D scanned, 3D printed, and hand-cast adaptation of the Munich Glyptothek's 2nd-century BC marble head of Ares, the Greek god of war. It is in the same style as the Louvre's famous full figure marble "Ares Borghese."

Griffins, dogs, and a sphinx decorate Ares’ helmet, and if anyone can make such magnificent headgear work, it's the chaotic god of war and his cultists.

In 2013 I spent a week working at the Skulpturhalle Basel plaster cast museum in Basel, Switzerland, where I 3D scanned a high fidelity 19th-century plaster cast of the original bust of Ares. I’ve now prepared the resulting 3D data—the first of its kind—for 3D printing wax patterns which are then hand cast in the traditional lost-wax casting method.

A 2,200 year-old design, you can now wear Ares around your neck, in an alloy of bronze and stainless steel.
