those terrorist Vikings, whose descendants are the insane & clueless Swedes, were never fashion savvy like the Assyrians (or the Finns). hell, their lack of style sense affects them to this very day - e.g. the men in the Swedish royal family still think it is chic to crochet... this is one thing that the Finns still joke about...
you could point out a similar instance with, say, Jesus. how many Christ Child portraits are historically accurate? or Virgin Mary depictions? & yet these things are constantly being sold, framed, prayed at, whatever. so what about historical accuracy? any retard or machine can make a reproduction. where would historical accuracy have taken Picasso? you're the artist - you should be the one calling the shots!! & naturally, your creations, whatever you shape, is going to have your personal touch in some way - this is simply unavoidable in the art world. & since you are ethnically Assyrian, you are therefore representative of (contemporary)Assyrian culture. clearly, you've studied the ancient works, & they are now so much a part of you that you ought to feel free to make things that are evocative of these works. Homer should try to be less petty & jealous...
if i wasn't a poor grad student, i'd buy some of your creations - i think they rock!
