Random Photo II: Drapery

This is the remains of an ancient statue.

ancient statue with missing head
I always marvel at the way the ancient sculptors made marble and stone look like draped cloth. The lighting on this piece was particularly good for emphasising that, plus it looks rather spooky!

  1. The great sculptors have said the piece is in the marble they simple chip away at the marble to find it...or something like that! Love your pic!
