Amanirenas Pin-Up

amanirenas-pin-up

I was looking at some vintage pin-up art by the Peruvian painter Alberto Vargas and wanted to emulate his style. The subject I selected was the Kushite warrior queen (or kentake) Amanirenas, known for leading Kush’s armies against the Roman legions in Egypt. Although Roman historians would describe her as blind in one eye, for all we know she could have been quite a hottie nonetheless.
