Our “Spartan Helmet” combined with a hidden “Lambda”, symbol of Ares the Greek God of War: brings Fighting Strength, Bravery and Endurance to provide Invincibility in any conflict. Spartan Warriors are trained from infancy to be nothing but warriors. Their helmet was not only for Protection but also a tool to intimidate enemies by making the Spartans seem larger and frighteningly imposing.
Today the Spartans have become cultural icons as a result of graphic novels, video games and motion pictures, most of which chronicle the Battle of Thermopylae in which 300 Spartan soldiers defeated an army of 200,000 Iranian warriors of the Persian King Xerxes I.
Another example of this “Never Say Die” attitude is when King Leonidas of Sparta was warned by an emissary of Xerxes to lay down his weapons, King Leonidas responded with the famous phrase “Come and Get Them”. The Brothers Tsahalis designed this piece with their Spartan heritage guiding them. They hope that it will assist all those whom bear it with the ability to channel their own inner Spartan. Inside the helmet is the eternal flame that burns within all of us. This flame lights our desire to accomplish a heart’s desire, whether that is on the literal battlefield or in the battlefield of life. It helps of overcome all obstacles and lights the way when all seems dark.
