The Porcelain Chariot portrays two horses pulling a chariot with no driver present. As the horses pull the chariot, it appears as if their speed is making them glide through the air. The glass finish glistens the entire piece, portraying the beauty found in the dangerous sport that was found in ancient Green, Roman, and Byzantine times.
