Some of My Art: Day 16

Today in The Cube:

Behold, the radiance of the Divine Augusts, First Emperor of Rome. Known to his friends as Octavian, great-nephew of Caius Julius Caesar (and later adopted son, via Caesar's will). Imagine being in college (as Octavian essentially was at the time) and receiving word that you'd inherited the greatest fortune (and, with it, basically all of Rome itself) from a relative you didn't really know too well. Wow.

This was a fun one. I love ancient (especially Roman) history.
