Catalogue Note

The present micromosaic and the five micromosaic roundels offered in the preceding lot all depict mythological charioteers:  Jupiter drawn by eagles, Apollo by two or four horses, Diana by two nymphs, Venus by doves and Saturn by winged snakes.  These images are generally considered to be after the artist Raffaello Sanzio, called Raphael (1483-1520).
