The horse tamer, is inspired by "The Iliad" of Homer.
The tamer of horses is Hector, a mythological hero from the ancient city of Troy, the setting for Homer's "The Iliad".
"Indeed Homer places Hector as the very noblest of all the heroes in the Iliad: he is both peace-loving and brave, thoughtful as well as bold, a good son, husband and father."
The painting is a tribute to him and to "The Iliad", one of the greatest myths ever told.
