D’après l’Antique
From the Antique Aurige of Delphe Proof in plaster with bronze patina H : 204 cm Discovered in Delphi in 1896 during the excavations organized by the French School of Athens, dated around 478-474 BC thanks to its inscription. This chariot driver of severe style is a masterpiece of the lost wax casting technique. Mario Fortuni was inspired by the drape of his chiton to renew fashion with his evening dress "Delphos" worn by Sarah Bernhardt or Isadora Duncan.
