Apollo and Daphne
Gian Lorenzo Bernini
marble
1622
I keep coming back to how beautiful this piece is…
A masterpiece, made to show off his extreme talent in transforming marble into flesh and drapery, tree bark and leaves, Bernini captured something more human than had been conveyed in the idealized figures of those before him. 
All this, at the young age of 24.  Apollo and Daphne
