Antiquity statues fascinate us, as we try to imagine the colossal effect of the whole sculpture. Faces look at us from a past long forgotten, remnants of civilizations now crumbled to dust. WE WERE HERE, the sculptures seem to affirm.
PS - HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY May 14th, to all Moms!!
What catches your eye when you travel - sculpture, architecture, food or the people? What do you think will survive from our time (of current architecture OR current monuments)?
Please leave a comment to let me know you were here, and I'll respond. Thanks for dropping by. There may be future Italian image posts, however, I don't have the full information as to where these locations are, as they were taken on a tour in 2016. The images I choose to highlight are for artistic enjoyment, rather than tour information.
Please note, this blog is on a slow-blog schedule. Thanks for continuing to read the posts!
