oh my god
Gian Lorenzo Bernini (1598-1680) appreciation post.
- Saint Louis XIV
- Apollo and Daphne
- Il Ratto di Proserpina + Close up
- St. Teresa in Ecstasy + Close up
I’ve seen several of these in person, and lemme tell you… I was pretty much in ecstasy myself. I love me some traditional Italian marble sculpture. I was raised in Rome, so I really miss not seeing it casually decorating the streets everywhere else in the world.
Giddy-Up Maybe this wasn’t such a great idea after all
