What an amazing work of art, and you've photographed it beautifully. The folds in the cloth are so beautiful and also the expression on this person's face. Another of the treasures of Rome.

Bernini, en Français Bernin. Les grands artistes comme les grandes villes ont leur nom traduit...

Cette statue me fait penser à la Pietà de Michel-Ange, si expressive, si douloureuse
J'ai eu la chance de voir la Pietà en vrai à rome et aussi des statues de géants et le David à Florence

Ce fond si sombre avec ces ombres, ces tons sépias accentuent le coté dramatique de la photo...

"Are you mad about what has been happening inside Iran these days? Well then take a deep breath... blow it all into a Green Balloon... and wait until Friday afternoon to send it up to the sky, wherever you are on this planet. Millions of Iranians inside Iran are planning to paint the sky green on Friday exactly at 1pm Tehran time. The non-violent green movement is being cracked down on the ground, so lets take it to the sky."
