Completion requirements

Photograph of a modern reconstruction of the polychromy of a Trojan archer from the Temple of Aphaia. He is posed in the action of kneeling down to shoot an arrow. A second arrow is held lightly between the fingers of the hand he is holding his bow with. A quiverful of arrows is suspended from his left hip; they are brightly coloured with blue shafts and red fletchings. His bow and the arrowheads seem a metallic bronze colour. His clothing is very colourful: his helment and the front of his tunic are a bright yellow and decorated with flowers and animals; his sleeves, leggings and quiver are covered in a pattern of rainbow colours.
