❤ - Wounded AchillesJean-Baptiste CarpeauxFrance, 1850~ In Greek mythology, Achilles (Ancient Greek: Ἀχιλλεύς, Akhilleus, pronounced [akʰillěws]) was a Greek hero of the Trojan War, the central character and the greatest warrior of Homer's Iliad. Later legends state that Achilles was invulnerable in all of his body except for his heel. As he died because of a small wound on his heel, the term Achilles' heel has come to mean one's point of weakness. Warrior, Art
