This early 19th century painting by Michelangelo Maestri looks like something my Grandmother might have in her dining room. The Chariot tarot card is typically associated with Mars, since it depicts the triumphal chariot ridden by the victor of a war in the victory parade. Nevertheless, I usually think of Apollo, since the mastery required to ride the chariot across the sky properly ties in with the themes of control and discipline implied by this card.
