The central theme revolves around Achilles' Shield, the very one wielded by the hero in his fateful battle against Hector, immortalized in Homer's epic 'Iliad'. This iconic shield had been borrowed by Achilles's dear friend Patroclus, who met his demise on the battlefield, spurring Achilles to seek vengeance. In a remarkable departure from typical Greek mythology, Homer intricately elaborates on the shield's design.

Its centre showcased a depiction of Earth, sky, and sea, along with the sun, moon, and the twelve constellations. Surrounding this were two distinct city scenes: one portraying a legal trial, and the other, a military siege. Encircling these scenes lay yet another ring adorned with depictions of life, encompassing both urban and rural aspects.
