Liberation by EthicallyChallenged Liberation by EthicallyChallenged

Brave Roman legionaries are liberating a Germanic village from terrorists. Germanic insurgents are depicted resisting arrest (punishable by death), resisting sexual advances and wearing provocative clothing (punishable by rape) and violating housing regulations (punishable by arson). In the foreground, a social services worker is depicted liberating a child, who will be given a better future, a trade, and life time job security somewhere in the Roman Empire.

That's quite the opposition of "liberation", it's more like a form of lesser genocide.

Why does the guy in the middle have ears on his helmet? Is he making a fashion statement?

It's feathers, a decoration common for officers I think.

Powerful composition, all around. I found your DA profile just today, but I wanted to offer my compliments on your stories well-told through painting. Too, I love your ironic titles and satiric commentary. Though, to be fair to the Romans, the Gauls, Picts, Germans, Dacians, and pretty much everyone else did the same to each other's villages during raids.
