THE HISTORY BEHIND THE ARTWORK:

Apollo and Pythia

The Oracle of Delphi developed into the most well-known and influential of all the oracles, throughout the ancient world.

Men and women would come from far and wide to consult the oracle at Delphi and it was the Pythia who met with them. She greeted the people, and served as the essential mouthpiece for the divine words of Apollo.
