As one of the most popular sports in the early Olympic games, the chariot race always marked the opening of the games. It was followed by the pentathlon which consisted of running, jumping, javelin and discus throwing and wrestling. This sculpture of a Greek / Roman Charioteer in his chariot drawn by two horses is an exquisite recreation of this historical event. Every angle reveals new details such as an eagle's head (symbol of the Roman empire) on the front of the chariot.
Made from bonded bronze, this beautiful Roman Charioteer measures 10"L x 4"W x 6"H.
