Severe Style Ancient Greek bronze sculpture of a charioteer, 480-460 BC, Delphi National Archaeological Museum.

The Charioteer is a rare example of Severe Style bronze statue that only servived ancient looters because it was buried by an earthquake. Plain and austere it mirrors the preveiling aestheics expected from ancient greek atheletes. The statue was probably sculpted following the teachings of Pythagoras of Samos due to its exact symetrical proportions
