7 AGAINST THEBES in art

Seven against Thebes is the third play in an Oedipus-themed trilogy produced by Aeschylus. It concerns the battle between an Argive army led by Polynices and the army of Thebes led by Eteocles and his supporters. The story was freely adapted in HERCULES UNCHAINED. And there was a  feature length film few people have seen called 7 FROM THEBES starring Andre Lawrence.

A mural/sculpture of the story. It can be found in the city of Corinth.

The sculpture is fantastic and artwork is great. I have the movie 7 FROM THEBES and really like it a lot.
