A pair of beautiful winged Eros riding two majestic striding horses. These pieces seem to be part of a sculpture with a carriage or with another larger piece, as the horse is with its legs raised in sign of race. The head is ornamented with strings and appliqués, in which polychromy is still preserved.  The horses have two winged figures on them, like mythological knights.
