Archaeological Museum of Delphi:

White-ground kylix, found in a tomb at Delphi. Work of an anonymous athenian vase-painter. On white ground, Apollo is depicted crowned with a wreath of myrtle leaves sitting on a stool with legs in the form of  lion paws. He is dressed in a white peplos and he is draped within a red himation. With his left hand he is plucking the the chords of his lyre, while with his right hand he is offering a wine libation from a navel-phiale. The black bird accompanying him is probably a crow, a reference to his mythical love for Aigle-Koroni, the daughter of king Phlegyas. (480-470 B.C)

Singer Weda Cook’s chin is raised so she can project her voice; her mouth open, in mid-song. At the beginning of each session, Eakins asked Cook to sing a portion of Mendelssohn’s oratorio, Elijah, which begins “O rest in the Lord.” For verisimilitude Eakins had Charles M. Schmitz, the conductor of the Germania Orchestra and Cook’s teacher, pose holding the baton.
