This basso- and mezzo-relievo frieze was inspired by a piece from Greek antiquity. The depiction of this convincing, lively tableau in such shallow relief demonstrates exceptional skill on the part of the carver.
The stirring scene shows a troupe of men hastily leading their horses on an urgent journey but are they escaping some danger, travelling to a promised land or facing an epic challenge?
The task of the commissioner of a frieze such as this is to fill in the details of the story, to become the narrator of their own personal myth.
