“But at my back I always hear, Time's winged chariot hurrying near; And yonder all before us lie, Deserts of vast eternity...”
~ Andrew Marvel
The Chariot represents every human's personal struggle to control the opposing forces constantly at war in one's life. The two horses in the image -- one white and one black -- symbolize the constant, opposing forces of light and dark that we must try to master in our lives. Like a charioteer trying to master a team of horses, every person must come to terms with both good and evil forces and impulses that are always tugging at the reins we are trying to master. The Chariot represents choices, motion, contradictions, struggles, and -- ultimately -- the power to confront each of these possibilities with our own hands.
