Introduced in ancient Greece, Chariot racing was a feature of the ancient Greek Olympic Games. The Romans, in their inimitable fashion, took this habit and turned it into the most popular of the mass entertainment staged spectacles in ancient Rome. This Roman Chariot sculpture is cast of oxolyte - a material comprised of the powdered marble residue of the quarry industry bonded with resin. Hand-finished by expert Tuscan artisans in a family-owned factory operating for over 40 years. A shiny alabaster finish with a marble base.
