    The Panathenaic Procession (water carriers). Relief (440-432 BCE) from the north frieze of the Parthenon, Athens, Greece.


    Relief showing horsemen. Pentelic marble; West frieze from the Parthenon, Athens,Greece; 447-33 BCE. The frieze represents the Panathenaic procession. Only two slabs of the West Frieze were removed by Lord Elgin and the rest of the West Frieze remained in situ on the Parthenon until it was removed to the Akropolis Museum in the late twentieth century. The overall subject of the West Frieze is the preparation for the procession with figures lacing up shoes, getting attired, and mounting horses. The directional flow is from right to left (south to north) with some figures that turn back to the south in order to create a compositional unity with the South Frieze. Slab 2 (displayed at the British Museum, London) is one of the most well-known, featuring two magnificent, heroically nude riders (probably carved by two different sculptors). The front rider has a three-quarters face and he looks back and raises his left hand to his head, a signal to the cavalcade behind him.
