Beautiful children carved out of marble! At a church or a cathedral I guess, non?

Sont-ils sur le piédestal d'une statue dédiée à Bacchus ? Bien assoiffés, c'est sûr !

My guess is that they are part of a fountain. Nice.

The ecstasy of satiating thirst. It communicates through the stone.

Little cherubs? Let's see what they're really doing? They are sensitively carved. You rarely see drinking in sculpture! This is nice.

My guess is that these are baroque sculpture of angels or putti on a marble relief fountain, but I don't know where it is! This precious art work needs restoring badly, I observe!

Ih how wonderful. It looks like marble. Yes? Darling cherubs. MB

I'm always amazed by stone sculpture - the shape and smoothness from stone.
