Art Sunday #107: Gian Lorenzo Bernini – Apollo and Daphne


apollo-and-daphne-by-bernini

Apollo and Daphne is a very graphic sculpture that was created in 1622-1625 by an Italian artist by the name of Gian Lorenzo Bernini. The sculpture shows the immense masterful craftsmanship of Bernini as he painstakingly recreates the apex of the story behind Phoebus and Daphne. A love that is destined never to be, can be no more than an epic tragedy.

I think this is the part where you are to write something clever and witty about yourself. I’m solidly locked in middle age and content with myself. I love to travel to see and experience new things, new foods and new drink. I also like to cook and bake mainly because I like to eat. And I found out that I’m pretty good at both. I'm not a professional blogger nor do I want to be. I'll leave that to others while I'll kick back and post whatever suddenly pops into my brain. I'm more spontaneous anyway. And the rest we’ll just kinda sorta figure out as we go along. Feel free to leave comments or even just to say "Hello". Find me at: https://mnghostt.wordpress.com.
