The Chariot (Tarot card)
A figure sits in a chariot, pulled by two sphinxes or horses. There is often a black and white motif, for example one of the steeds may be black and the other white. The figure may be crowned or helmeted, and is winged in some representations. The figure may hold a sword or wand. The Thoth Tarot deck has the figure controlling four animals.
A canopy of stars above the charioteer's head is intended to show "celestial influences".
