Great piece! Who would have thought it would have been such a politically-loading thing -- that's really quite annoying.

I like how you included the lion in the photo, as well. It reminds me of what Pseudo-Callisthenes wrote:
"For he had the hair of a lion and one eye was blue; the right one was heavy lidded and black, and the left one was blue; and his teeth were sharp as fangs, and he looked upon a defensive attack the same as a lion would."

The lion imagery certainly is apt.

For your information....Hellenes existed since 25,000 before christ. Philip the Father of Alexander created Macedonia almost 800bc years before you gypsis descented from up north where you came from. You never spoke a word of Hellenic language.. Alexander himself conducted a lighting war against you and all the other contries north of Hellas before he moved against the Persians.. In addition, Alexander himself considered his war against the barbarians in the east, a continuation of the trojan war in which his uncle Achilles participated and played a major role. What about Aristotle?? He was one of the greatest philosophers of the world taught by Plato in ANTHENS and then he trained young Alexander and gave him the mission which he carried out to the last word.. You and the rest of the world exist because of the Hellenes.. You are lucky I dont have much space to prove that you are nothing and you are trying to become something just by stealing history and civilization from the only country that created it.. Every bit of it..The whole world breaths the Hellenic air today.. That is because its free..

It's funny,really funny reading all this comments about the origins of Alexander by people who obviously have no idea about history. Anyway, let's forget history since there are people here that have read the wrong books. There is one fact, one and only that cannot be changed and it does not concern history. It is about language. Inside the royal tombs, inside the tomb of Alexander's father himself, all the inscriptions are written in one language. IT IS THE GREEK LANGUAGE, ALIVE FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS, STILL READABLE BY ANY GREEK, THE LANGUAGE OF ALEXANDER'S FATHERS, ALEXANDER'S HIMSELF, THE LANGUAGE OF HERCULES, FOUNDER OF THE LONG FAMILY OF MAKEDONIA'S KINGS. READ THIS DUMP SLAVS
ΗΡΑΚΛΗΙΠΑΤΡΩΙΟΙ, ΕΣΤΙΜΕΝΟΥΝΕΛΛΑΣΚΑΙΗΜΑΚΕΔΟΝΙΑ
Well obviously only greeks can read this. The first one is an inscription from the tomb,the second a geographical description of Makedonia by Stravon (Strabo). The slavs who want to steal history are so dump, they even copied the name wrong: It is Makedonia (with the D read as "th"). No such thing as Macedonia.They even called their country Macenonija or something, then changed it to Macedonia.They don't even know what to call their country! One more clue: The placename is 100% greek. You'll find thousands of greek names ending in -nia. (Makedonia, Ionia,Akarnania,etc,etc) Not one in any slavic language. It is sad though that these people are raised and continuously guided by wrong propaganda, leaving their true history for something that they are not. No argue about these clues, sorry.

I thought Greeks were right about this Macedonia thing in first but,
than i saw this: Alexander the Great's long-lost descendants in Pakistan.
After that i saw one of them speaking, I think he is Prince or something there in that Macedonian village in Pakistan.
He said following:
We aren't Greeks or Helens we are Macedonians We were never Greeks We will never be Greeks.So my Little Greeks please accept the truth because they proved they are really Alexander the Great's long-lost descendants with gene check in IGENEA Genealogy and Genetics Services.After or Before that i am not sure, they visited FYROM in fact I am not gonna call it FYROM any more because
they said that This is Macedonia and these are Macedonians.They Never visited
Greece by the way.Why They didnt?LOOOOL

I like this painting very much.
I am American artist but i have to say this.Greeks say that theirs's dark skin is because of the Turks, many other countries were under Turkish occupation in that time
but still their skin is not dark.If you ask me I would say Greeks are no worthy of Macedonian history in fact They aren't worthy of any History because they didn't won any war or anything by them self.Turks won them in one day same
was with Hitler.England occupied Macedonia for them and at the last, England created today's Greece for them.
Well cmon for christ's sake shut up already, coward's doesn't deserve Macedonian History.You just got lucky to have someone do everything for you.

Great work mate.
Don't mind the greeks they just want to cover up the ethnic cleansing on Macedonians they made in past.They can say
what ever they want but they can't deny that they did ethnic cleansing and murdering innocent people.

As much as I like the picture, I was sad to read this is nothing but another petty atempt from the FYROM side to snatch a new national identity...
This is just so ridiculus.. Alexander the Slav? bah!

Guest's picture

Thank you for the comments, i created this image with a great artist Kirsi. I created this image for all Macedonian to enjoy but most of all for my father who is a MACEDONIAN bred and born PATRIOT.

Guest's picture

thanks to whoever you re that made this I'm Macedonian and greatly thankful to this depiction of our most glorified and famous king ignore the hatred and accept my thank-fullness

No matter what Greeks say or do in the past present and future Macedonia will live forever be as Macedonia with Macedonians. There is no need for insults to one another. Alexander the Great fought for MACEDONIA.

Macedonia is Great. Alexander's father Phillip is Macedonian, meaning his son is. If Philip wasn't his father, Alexander wouldn't had the ability to be what he was.

Excellent portrait. You have got a God-given talent. Simply amazing!

The Macedonian Royal house spoke Greek(read your history).Alexander claimed one of his ancestors was Heracles among others.Macedonia was considered especially by Athenians to be a fairly uncivilised part of the world but,Greek never the less.Culturally Macedonia was very different to other major Greek states and Philip(Alexanders father)endeavoured to drag Macedonia into the enlightened period Greece was enjoying at this time.Please guys,just enjoy the beautiful picture for what it is and leave politics to politician.Love not war.

Alexander the great was Greek as the ancient and modern real Macedonians where they are native Greek people...if you found some country called as "macedonia" is just a Yugoslavian propaganda for the stealing of Greek history and land of macedonia...dont believe on every Slavic lies....Greetings from a real Macedonian...simply Greek and proud of it...

I find this picture the best of Alexander the great. And I have to say: I AM MACEDONIAN AND NO BODY CAN SAY THAT ALEXANDER IS GREEK! ALEXANDER IS THE MACEDONIAN KING AND NOT THE GREEK!! REMEMBER IT
