Detail from The Rape of Proserpina, By Gian Lorenzo Bernini (1621-22)
Truly a magnificent sculptor. Pluto's squeezing of Proserpina's thighs and ribs looked so real that I thought this was a photo before I recognized the work.
Scary good. Scary GREAT.
Damn, Alex, nice pick. This sculpture was one of the most amazing things I saw on my honeymoon in Italy. Caravaggio and Bernini were the two artists whose work hit me hardest on that trip. Nice taste, good sir.
Ab-olutely. Tremendous, Alex.
Amazing piece of art.
