The original sculpture is in the State Hermitage Museum, St. Petersburg. It is a Roman copy of the original Greek sculpture made by alkamenes 420 BC.
The god Ares (Mars in Roman culture) is the god of war, courage and self-improvement.
Ares had a chariot drawn by four immortal stallions with golden bridles that breathed fire. Among the other gods, Ares was renowned for his bronze armour and the spear he wielded in battle. His favourite animal was the dog.
In classical Greek art his usual attributes were a crested helmet and a spear with which he easily defeated his enemies.
