Alexander vs Candace of Meroe

Author Comments

This is my illustration of an ancient legend claiming Alexander the Great invaded Kush (aka Nubia or modern Sudan) and was driven back by Queen Candace's war elephants. The legend is almost certainly apocryphal, since most historians maintain that Alexander never penetrated deeper into Africa than Siwa in northern Egypt. Nonetheless the idea of Nubian war elephants scaring the crud out of one of the ancient world's most successful conquerors was too irresistible not to illustrate.

Unfortunately I was working on a small piece of paper, so I couldn't draw a lot of detail on either Alexander or Candace (which is a real shame because I couldn't get Candace's good looks across from this distance).
