Centuries of classical and catholic wealth creating astonishing artefacts
and incredible opulence.
Some of the statues are fantastic, but they did have a tendency to put very small heads on some of them – to emphasise the impressive physical stature of the torso. The pictures come from The Vatican Museum and The Capitolini Museum.
However – caution – if you go to too many museums you may end up with statue-saturation or worse still, fresco-fatigue!
