The Charioteer

Even though the mark of a Greek Classic art piece, the contrapposto, is missing in this bronze sculpture of a Charioteer, the individualized face and feet reflect a break from the Greek Archaic period, and the introduction of something new.  His eyes are made of onyx and his eyelashes and lips are made of copper.  Created merely ten years after the Kritios Boy (link), this charioteer, found at the sanctuary of Apollo at Delphi, is has an idealized body and an expression of extreme concentration.  The inscription commemorates the charioteer for winning the Pythian Games, so this statue is most likely of a real person.
