Roman Chariot Sculpture.
The Roman charioteer is urging his steeds to even greater swiftness with his dynamic hold of the reins on this thrilling Roman chariot sculpture. The charioteer is dressed in an ancient Roman traditional outfit, including a detailed a tunic, cape, headpiece and sandals. His bearded face is focused as he stands in the small two-wheeled carriage which is adorned with the richly decorated carvings of the wheels, an eagle's head and jewels. The warrior leans with all of his strength back and balances on his back foot as he steers the rearing horses.
The horses on this chariot sculpture are radiant and lovely with thick curly flowing manes and tails and golden coats. This Roman charioteer sculpture stands on a heavy base with a "road" of dark gold upon which the chariot rides. This ancient bronze Roman warrior riding his chariot is an ornate masterpiece.
Because the base has ridges on it's side, adhering a plaque is not possible.
Roman Chariot racing was dangerous to both drivers and horses as they often suffered serious injury and even death. Even though women were barred from most sporting events they were allowed to attend chariot racing.
