Apollo and Daphne

 Rome is blessed with artistic treasures beyond compare, especially when it comes to sculpture. I'd brought friends to the Borghese Gallery to check out one of my favorites. Could I explain why this statue intrigued me? Check it out (here).  



  1. it is a wonderful piece of art, even if turning into a tree is not a great thing to be

  2. ugolino by rodin is much the same for me...i sat and looked at it for a long time at the Met...that is def an amazing sculpture...and a moment of magic captured int hat transformation...err...wonder if he got splinters you know...hahaha
