Front part of a sarcophagus, Severe period (ca. 200), Rome (?), Marble.

The legend of Pelops and OEnomaüs was appropriate for the decoration of the tomb of two spouses. In this case, the sculptor has retained no less than five successive scenes from this mythical tale, from left to right: the arrival of Pelops, the chariot race, the return of Pelops, the return of Pelops to the palace and, finally, the departure of Pelops and his lover Hippodamia.

Musée d’Art et d’Histoire (Musée du Cinquantenaire, Brussels, Belgium). Made of 500 pictures with Zephyr3D Lite from 3DFlow.
