The stadium was where chariot races took place back in the days, filling the arena with power and beauty. However, all that is left now is the ruins of the racetracks.

Polyhedron Lion
A powerful lion with a sad face leaping out of a cave by 17th century Italian master sculptor Giovanni Bellini I saw at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2012 is an artwork that left a memorable impression in me and that lion is the saddest I’ve ever seen.

Zeus leads a procession of gods' and fairies' chariots, each pulled by two flying horses, to the pinnacle of heaven: their colorless, shapeless and intangible dwelling place.
