Figure D (commonly identified as Dionysos) from the East Pediment of the Parthenon. Here we can see his legs, and where his feet would have been attatched. He reclines on a rock. His seat is softened by a mantle and an animal fur. Despite the fact that both of his hands are missing, Figure D is the only pediment sculpture with an intact head. He glances to the left, towards the rising sun of Helios, one of whose four horses can be seen (only two are at the British Museum, the other two are in Athens).
Attributed to the famous sculptor Pheidias between 438 BCE-432 BCE. BM 1816,0610.93. (British Museum, London)
