Statue of Apollo
The image shows the remnants of the sculptures that were part of the west pediment of Temple of Zeus at Olympia, Greece. As you can see from the image, the statue of Apollo is at the center of the pediment.

The theme of the west pediment is the fight between Lapiths and Centaurs and depicted the abduction of Lapith women by Centaurs.

The sculptures were restored from the artifacts excavated near the Temple of Zeus, and are now on display at the Olympia Archaeological Museum.
