Beautiful! It reminds me of the statues I saw inside the Pantheon in Paris.

I like your choice of angle. I wonder what they'd come up with if it was to be made nowadays... Happy weekend JM!

I've always loved this monument, even though I've never seen it in person. But in my American history class, dealing with Columbus, the books always included a photo of this monument!

I do like these kinds of friezes or whatever they're called. Looks nice in b&w too!

The friars are really gung-ho with the cross.
