The Warrior series were mostly inspired by Tamayo's collection of pre Colombian artefacts in his museum in Oaxaca in Mexico. When I was a child, I was obsessed with toy soldiers and drawing battlescapes of Romans, Vikings and Ancient Britons in casts of thousands. I still have not entirely grown out of that phase of my life which will soon manifest itself with two colossal depictions of two mythical battling giants, Gog and Magog, on Plymouth Hoe.
