The charioteer of Delphi - enchanting bust
The original of this beautiful bust was found in 1896 near the famous Apollo Shrine in Delphi/Greece.

The beautiful and detailed bronze statue was handed over to the victor of a chariot race. Only the bust is still preserved to this day. The figurine steered originally a Quadriga with four noble horses. The figurine also wears a headband on its head.
