Group of Centaur and Lapith

Archaeological Museum of Olympia, Greece

"Group of Centaur and Lapith, the ne plus ultra of the symbolic representation of the eternal clash between Spirit and Matter on the western pediment of Olympia. The Lapith with his wrinkled brow and serene expression is trying to defeat the monstrous Centaur, who is resisting and, with brute instinct that is amazingly rendered by the composition's artist through every detail of his bearded head, biting his opponent, while at the same time trying to free himself from his forceful hold."
