View of Apollo, the central figure of the west pediment of the Temple of Zeus at Olympia.
Apollo seems so serene; he exhibits a calm look, outstretched arm, and calm physical features. The head, on the left side of the image, at the end of the outstretched arm, is probably that of Peirithoos whose wife is being attacked (click here to view).
