Wonder Woman on Horseback Statue
This Wonder Woman Statue is an hand-painted cold-cast porcelain statue of a Modern Age Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman on Horseback with full-color eye decals, airbrushed accents, molded resin and vinyl details, based on her appearance in the Wonder Woman (2017) feature film in a pose that is both taken directly from a climactic scene in the film, and also inspired by the cover artwork of Wonder Woman, Volume 1, Issue #1 ( Summer 1942) atop an environmental base with molded trim and dimensional Wonder Woman symbols on each side. Diana of Themyscira is an Amazon warrior princess and one of the world’s first superheroes, known as Wonder Woman. She is the daughter of Queen Hippolyta and Zeus, the King of the Old Gods, as well as a member and co-founder of the Justice League. Born on Themyscira, Diana was raised in a land of paradise, hearing tales of the Amazons’ great task of defeating the corrupt God of War, Ares, ushering in a new era of peace to the world. Upon coming of age, Diana began pursuing the life of a warrior, despite her mother’s objections. Determined to serve, she ultimately enticed her aunt Antiope to train her in secret. This, however, was soon discovered by her mother.
Begrudgingly, the queen accepted Diana as a warrior, and ordered Antiope to train her better than any other Amazon. Following a training session, Diana happened to come across Captain Steve Trevor during his escape from the Imperial German Army in the ongoing Great War. A battle soon followed, as the Germans tracked Trevor to Themyscira, where they invaded in pursuit of Doctor Poison‘s notes. The loss of Antiope and subsequent realization of mankind’s downfall during the absence of the Amazons convinced Diana to join the war effort, recognizing Ares as the instigator of the conflict. In the following days, Diana soon uncovered Ares, who exposed her to be the God Killer, having been originally conceived to be the ultimate weapon against her brother. Following this revelation, a fierce battle ensued, where Diana fulfilled her purpose in freeing mankind from Ares’ influence. The loss of Steve in World War I and the loss of her other friends sometime after 1918 had left Diana broken-hearted and isolated but she vowed to protect humanity whenever she was needed due to her very compassionate nature over the years in the shadows as a mysterious female savior which people are curious about on who she is.
She also gained more knowledge on the world and she changed residence over the years to keep herself guarded while landing jobs at museums like the Smithsonian Museum in Washington, D.C. In 1984, she came into conflict with entrepreneur Maxwell Lord and former friend Barbara Minerva all while reuniting with Steve to prevent a possible nuclear war between the United States and the Soviet Union after Max used the Dreamstone for his own means which caused global chaos and instability in the process. She successfully did so after she convinced Max and the people of the world to renounce their wishes to undo the chaos that was created. In modern times, Diana operates as the curator of the Louvre Museum as Diana Prince. 2 years following the Black Zero Event, Diana came into conflict with billionaire supergenius Lex Luthor, who discovered a photograph of Diana and the Wonder Men during his search for metahumans. During her pursuit of Luthor, Diana crossed paths with Bruce Wayne, who discovered her secret after their confrontation during his search for the White Portuguese.
Later, along with the photograph on Luthor’s files Bruce sent her, Diana discovered the evidence of metahumans in the world. With her mission fulfilled, Diana prepared to depart back to London, but the emergence of the monstrous Doomsday led Diana to ally herself with Superman and Batman to take down the monster in a fierce battle that ended with the tragic death of Superman. Afterwards, in the wake of Clark’s funeral, Diana and Bruce decided to create a team to battle any future threats to the world. As the world mourned for the Man of Steel, Diana combatted the rise of radicals who saw Superman’s death as an omen and capitalized on the world’s vulnerability. Shortly after the team assembled, Wonder Woman assisted in helping a newly resurrected Superman regain his memories. With the team now fully assembled, Wonder Woman contributed to the successful offensive against Steppenwolf, forcing the alien invasion into retreat. Afterwards, she began to plan for the Justice League‘s future alongside Bruce Wayne.
Diana is depicted as a masterful athlete, acrobat, fighter and strategist, trained and experienced in many ancient and modern forms of armed and unarmed combat, including exclusive Amazonian Martial Arts. With her godlike abilities of incalculable superhuman strength, nigh-invulnerability, speed, flight, fast healing and semi-immortality, Diana’s fighting prowess is enhanced. In some versions, her mother trained her, as Wonder Girl, for a future career as Wonder Woman. From the beginning, she is portrayed as highly skilled in using her Amazon Bracelets to stop bullets and in wielding her Golden Lasso. Batman once called her the “best melee fighter in the world“. The modern version of the character is known to use lethal force when she deems it necessary. In the New 52 continuity, her superior combat skills are the result of her Amazon Training, as well as receiving further training from Ares, the God of War, himself, since as early as her childhood. The Golden Age Wonder Woman also had education in advanced arts and sciences as well as psychology, emotions, and emotional intelligence, as did her Amazon sisters.
