Bellona, the Goddess of War, took no time to build temples or gather worshipers. She favors only those for whom war is life; for that is where she thrives – not on the steps of hallowed basilicas or in whispered prayers, but in the blood-soaked mud, among the breathless armored troops, in the roar of victory. When Rome was young, Bellona ran with her armies, conquered her enemies, making her strong. As Rome aged and began to crumble, she fought only with her strongest and most cunning of worshipers, Lucius Cornelius Sulla. Sulla was utterly unbeatable, and it was the Goddess of War that made him so. Sulla became the first life-long dictator of Rome. During Sulla’s reign, Bellona was worshiped for the Goddess she was.
Shappi Workshop‘s work is absolutely beautiful! Her gallery features a lot of “work in progress’ – of which I am a huge fan! Her weathering and aging techniques are particularly fantastic – her painting on the armor is gorgeous! I absolutely love everything about this build from the bottom of her feet to the top of her well-styled wig. She brings Bellona to life beautifully!
