In the picture “Challenge” Chris Achilles depicted the confrontation of irreconcilable enemies. Beauty and courage against cruelty. Impenetrable thick walls of the fortress, the open mouth of the dragon and the dark forces of the sorcerer – against them only the mysterious power of the feminine. Seductive, courageous, dangerous, insidious power.
And deceptively defenseless. Chris Achilleos for his creative period created many female images and they were always strong warlike women, ready to fight alone and win. They are Amazons, women vamp, dangerous with their destructive beauty, possessing secrets of magic, subjugating to themselves the forces of terrestrial and cosmic energies.
