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.
