I enjoyed studying the multitude of statues that we encountered when we were in Italy – the craftsmanship was always astonishing. At one of the museum within the Vatican Museums, though, I found statues that were for the first time really. . . just creepy to me.
I just spent quite a lot of time scouring the internet trying to remember what/who this sculpture is, but I do know it is in the Gallery of Busts in the Vatican.
I just can’t get over the eyes – you would think that I would be more ok with eyes, as that makes the statues feel more human, but it’s the opposite, for me. XD
