Daphne and Apollo


One of the marble sculptures we saw in Rome, Italy was breathe taking.  Its the Apollo and Daphne sculpture by Gian Lorenzo Bernini located at the Borghese Gallery.  I had no idea a sculpture could have such exquisite details.  These pictures do not do it justice.

Depicted is Daphne is being turned into a laurel tree while Apollo chases her in vain.

    I remember this sculpture quite well from our trip to Rome. It has such a powerful impact. The detail, the emotion, it was breathtaking. Thanks for whisking me back to my own journey through Rome.

    This sculpture is still my favorite piece of art we’ve seen in Europe. I have never seen any of Bernini’s other stuff, but hope to someday.

    We were in Rome for 3 days this summer but didn’t make it to the Borghese Gallery – maybe next time!
