The remains of the east pediment of the Temple of Zeus (c. 460 BCE) are housed in the Archaelogical Museum of Olympia, Greece.
“Pausanias (Paus. 5.10.8) identifies the subject of the East Pediment as the chariot race between Oenomaos, King of Pisa, and Pelops, a suitor of Oenomaos’ daughter Hippodameia....The quietness of the scene suggests that the specific event is the taking of the oath by the contestants before the race, watched over by Zeus in the center of the pediment.”

Using an artist’s grayscale drawing, I outlined the sculptures in Illustrato and extruded them in Cinema 4D, then painted the drawing in Photoshop and mapped it to the model. This was a much faster approach to recreating the pediment sculptures than modeling them individually, although at much lower fidelity. The sculptures are polychromed, in keeping with ancient Greek artistic traditions.
