Exclusive to the British Museum, a pin badge inspired by an ancient Greek vase. 

Crafted from enamelled metal, this pin badge is based on traditional black-figure scenes found on ancient Greek vases, plates and other pottery.

The design is inspired by a vase that shows the Greek hero Achilles slaying Penthesilea, the queen of the Amazons during the epic Trojan war. The climax of the scene shows Achilles thrusting his spear into the neck of Penthesilea at the very moment that he falls in love with her.

The original vase can be seen on display in the British Museum’s collection.

A fascinating souvenir from the Museum.
