Study for Helios

The image shows four horses energetically pulling a chariot driven by Helios. Helios is the god and personification of the Sun in ancient Greek religion and myth, often depicted in art with a radiant crown and driving a horse-drawn chariot through the sky. He was also a guardian of oaths and god of sight. The work is unfinished.
