EDITORS COMMENTS
On an Orgiac night in 331 BC, Thais, the mistress of Alexander the Great, plays a pivotal role in one of history's most infamous moments. In this stunning 19th-century illustration, she is depicted putting a torch into the hand of the king as they prepare to burn the city of Persepolis, capital of the Kingdom of Persia. The scene captures a mix of power, passion, and destruction as Alexander and his followers revel in their conquest. Thais' presence adds an element of intrigue and complexity to the narrative - a woman with agency in a world dominated by men. As we gaze upon this historical moment frozen in time, we are reminded of the complexities and contradictions that define human history. The beauty and elegance of Thais dancing amidst chaos and destruction serve as a poignant reminder that even in times of war and violence, there is still room for artistry and grace. This print from North Wind Pictures invites us to reflect on the legacy of Alexander the Great and his controversial actions. It challenges us to consider how power dynamics shape our understanding of history and how individuals like Thais can influence monumental events with just a simple gesture.
