I'm very pleased with it.
|Here is Triptolemos in his winged chariot, which is also serpent-drawn. He's about to have one for the road. No breathalysers in those days...|
|This proves serpent-drawn chariots really were a thing. These serpents have wings, which must have helped, though the driver looks as if he's had just about enough of the left hand serpent complaining.|
|Here everyone has wings except the chariot. It must feel a bit redundant, but I suppose you could stash the picnic basket in it.|
|Now this is is just being silly. A chariot drawn by eagles?|
|For if you want to take your chariot fishing...|
|Here we have a neat little runaround, which would probably have no problem passing an MOT. Again, horseless. Maybe the patron who commissioned the sculptor couldn't afford to get horses carved...|
|This one I have grave doubts about. Who are those random naked people about to get kicked by the horses' rear legs? And where is the horses' harness? Unfeasible. Nice hubcaps, though.|
|This is how I imagine Saffy McGuire|
