View of the full bronze statue of the Charioteer.  In his right hand the charioteer holds the leather reins of his four horses. 

“The Charioteer stands erect; his long robe with its almost columnar fluting is the epitome of elegance.  The folds of the robe (a long tunic called a xystis) fall in a natural way, varying in width and depth, and the whole garment seems capable of swaying and rippling with the charioteer’s movement.”  His calm demeanor does not suggest the heat of a race, but rather the pose of a victor taking a “victory lap.”

It is 5 ft. 11 in. [1.8 m] high. It was originally standing in a chariot that was pulled by four horses and the whole grouping was placed on the top of a monument and viewed from below.
