My vision of Alexander "the Great" III, the famous Macedonian general who conquered the entire Persian Empire and brought about the so-called Hellenistic Age.

There's a huge debate on the interwebs over whether Alexander and his Macedonian people were Greeks as popularly believed or instead a separate ethnic group with their own language. I find the Macedonian side of the argument more persuasive, as ancient Greek writers explicitly called the Macedonians "barbarians" and otherwise spoke of the Greeks and Macedonians as if they were distinct peoples. Ergo, I decided to go with a more "barbaric" design for my rendition of Alexander, giving him a bearskin cape and Celtic-style face paint.
