Daphne and Apollo

One of the marble sculptures we saw in Rome, Italy was breathtaking.  Its the Apollo and Daphne sculpture by Gian Lorenzo Bernini located inside the Borghese Gallery, a private gallery that you need an appointment to visit. I had no idea a sculpture could have such exquisite details. These pictures simply do not do it justice.

This is a must-see during a trip to Rome.
